Our mission is to use dance as a vehicle for human development and connection, including helping people realize their full potential and inner beauty.  We provide information to stimulate dialogues about culture, today’s society and historical Black figures.


Rod Rodgers Dance Company came into existence during the 1960's when many artists were called upon to create works that reflected a new and positive community consciousness. Mr. Rodgers' believed that dance images reflected truths about the human experience and have the unique ability to touch people on a primal level of "feeling identity".

we commit to the use of

creative movement exploration

as a vehicle for human development."
