We strive to make our Crossroads connect artists with artists and unite dancers with audiences. Ultimately, we all meet at the intersection of art and life.
Crossroads Dance Indy (CDI) was created in May 2015 when a group of Indianapolis-based dance artists came together to create artistic opportunities and outlets for inspired creativity. The founding members saw a need for more connection and partnership within the Indianapolis dance community and hoped to bridge the gap by creating connections with other artists and groups, as well as creating project-based work and offering classes in varied techniques to the public.
CDI holds company classes weekly to strengthen both artistry and technical abilities, as well as promote the art of dance in the Indianapolis community. All CDI company members have a wide range of experiences which have created a strong and unique technical and artistic base for our creations and collaborations.
CDI's season includes numerous performance opportunities, including participating in IndyFringe and, new in 2022, an evening length performance at Arts for Lawrence. The company is also involved in community events and educational opportunities.
Crossroads Dance Indy became a 501(c)(3) organization in 2019, and our mission is to establish community connections and impact local society through evolving artistic collaborations and works.
