We respectfully ask for your tax deductible financial assistance to help with the flow in our actions.  Chris Ferris & Dancers presents dance that is brought to you with the vibrancy of unique and quirky action weaving an event that puts you squarely into the present tense.  There is nothing like live performance.  Be with us through our leaps, falls, bounces, and slices.  We offer sweat, heavy breathing, and an eyeful of action that gets you dancing within yourself.  We offer live original music made specifically with each dance.


Chris Ferris & Dancers aims to contribute to the culture of dance by creating an acute awareness of movement and its many possibilities so that you can view your everyday life from another dimension.  Movement is a large communicator.  We have been speaking this language of limbs, torso, mind, heart, and soul in New York City for over 30 years.  Be a part of this tradition by making it possible for us to pay artists and meet the costs of theater rental, rehearsal space, technical staff, and publicity.

Chris Ferris & Dancers performed Seasonal-Just In Time a new 1/2 evening work in Green Space’s Take Root series on Oct. 14 and 15, 2022. Here are 6 min. of excerpts: https://vimeo.com/767861049  We are working to develop this piece into a full evening work.


Seasonal-Just In Time is a suite of dances brewed up from observations of the shifting, circular patterns of trees, plants, and weather. Linear Folds in Orbit is a tightly composed brainy duet contrasting round flow and linear precision. The movement’s small details are its conversation and its large sweeps are a breath of air clearing the senses. The Pendulum Weighs In (trio) takes the momentum of a single axis and hurls it into space. The altered directions shift the temperature of the room. Choreography is by Chris Ferris. Music is by Loren Kiyoshi Dempster.  Dancers are: Julia Asher, Alli Bradley, Kelly Ireland, and Rachael Venner.
