Ishida Dance Company


ISHIDA - a new world-class contemporary dance company for Texas--presents works that celebrate the beauty and vulnerability of the human form. ISHIDA creates distinct narratives that are relevant to a modern audience addressing universal themes of our psyche - fear, belonging, loss, and love.


ISHIDA Dance Company is led by former Les Grands Ballets dancer and UCLA graduate Brett Ishida. The company was founded in 2019 and is based in Austin, Texas. ISHIDA presents high-caliber contemporary dance performances with new creations that prompt existential questions. Through poetic narratives that highlight the beauty of the human form, ISHIDA connects to audiences extending an invitation towards introspection and communal regard. 

Beyond public performances, ISHIDA provides educational outreach through interactive dance workshops to at-risk youth and diverse and differently-abled communities that nurture connectedness and social-emotional wellbeing.
