Ishida Dance Company


ISHIDA, a new world-class contemporary dance company for Texas, presents works that celebrate the beauty, physicality, and vulnerability of the human form. ISHIDA creates unique narratives relevant to a modern audience addressing archetypal and universal themes of our psyche - betrayal, belonging, loss and love - to lead to greater kindness towards oneself and otherness.


ISHIDA Dance Company is led by former Les Grands Ballets dancer and UCLA graduate Brett Ishida. ISHIDA presents high caliber contemporary dance performances with nationally venerated dancers in new creations that prompt existential questions. Through original poetic narratives that highlight the beauty of the human form, ISHIDA emotionally connects to audiences extending an invitation towards introspection and communal regard. Beyond public performances, ISHIDA provides educational outreach to at-risk youth and diverse and differently abled communities which support self-esteem, camaraderie and social-emotional wellbeing.
