Serving as the only professional dance company in Frederick, Equinox Dance Company strives to promote dance as an expressive art form, as well as a physical activity, throughout the community through classes, workshops, and performances. Equinox is a highly diverse company, fusing jazz, tap, and ballet with its contemporary modern-based background. The company hosts weekly technique classes in a variety of styles taught by company members, as well as monthly master classes with local guest artists. These classes are open to anyone 16 years or older.

Equinox has partnered with Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership of Frederick County and Frederick County Parks & Recreation to bring the benefits of dance to youth of the community, and hosts two yearly outreach workshops for children and one for adults to enable participants to not only learn dance, but also perform.

Equinox presents an Annual Children’s Show in December at Delaplaine Visual Arts Center. Join us at this year’s show, Blast Off, inspired by games and rides at carnivals and featuring new work by company members, on December 10! The company also presents an annual full-length performance each April, which includes new works by company members and guest artists. No Trespassing will take place on April 20 and 21 at the Jack B Kussmal Theatre.

Equinox’s recent repertoire consists of work by artistic director Bria Comper and company members Grace Gonzalez and Christine Evans, as well as guest artists including Sandra Atkinson, founder and Artistic Director of Light Switch Dance Theatre; Emily Runkle, former professional ballerina with Ballet Chesapeake, Misako Ballet, Merge Dance Company, and New York State Ballet; and Jeanna Riscigno, founder of LucidBeings Dance Company.
