STORY IDEAS: DANCE MOMS-Collide provides complimentary on-site childcare to our Artist Parents during rehearsals and matinee performances. The cost of childcare often equals what an artist is paid, and this essential program allows our artists to continue to create work on the stage as well as balance family life.
DANCE MUSICAL- While there are many companies in New York that have a similar style of movement, COLLIDE is the only Twin Cities based company that translates literary novels through the use of dance and music. The bridge the gap between the dance and theater world, allowing accessibility for novice dance audiences to relate to the story.
