Hanna Q Dance Company is a Contemporary-Modern Dance Company full of energy! The Swedish born and raised Artistic Director and Choreographer, Johanna LjungQvist-Brinson (Hanna Q) founded HQDC in May 2013.During each performance, the company sweeps the audience into a different world full of emotions. Johanna engulfs one in the atmosphere she creates. One gets lost in the movements, the music, the lighting, and the interactions between the dancers. The choreography is comprised of technically rigorous movements, derived from Johanna's background in Dunham technique, as well as partnering at once intricately acrobatic and viscerally human. Her dancers' express bursts of passion and athleticism, while taking the audience along on her journey. The company has performed in venues mostly in NYC, including Dixon Place, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Dance Festival, TADA!Theater, The Actors Fund Arts Center, Green Space, New York Live Arts, The Triskelion Arts, and West End Theater.
