DISCOVER Peridance Contemporary Dance Company

Peridance Contemporary Dance Company (PCDC) was founded by Artistic Director Igal Perry in 1984 and has since been a powerhouse of energetic and evocative dance. Mr. Perry's choreography, which is rooted in ballet, is known for being timelessly elegant and brilliantly musical. The company employs classically trained dancers from the US, Japan, Korea, Italy, The Philippines, Brazil, France, Spain, as well as several apprentices. Together with Executive Director Yarden Ronen-van Heerden, Perry has structured PCDC to explore movement and design with an emphasis on performing diverse repertory by notable choreographers. This repertory is featured in an annual New York Season, which serves as a launch pad for new works and touring programs both nationally and internationally. As a part of its non-profit identity, PCDC offers free classes and outdoor showcases to charitable organizations and schools throughout New York City. These offerings, in addition to residency work and commissions from colleges and conservatories, round out a full roster of creative and educational activities.
