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 was recently presented by the Katonah Museum Artist’s Association’s Creative Mind Series on March 19, 2024 at the Bedford Hills Train Station. Chris Ferris discussed how she creates dances, showed 2 new works, and got the audience moving. The 2 dances to be shown are:


Uncharted is a duet that takes the pleasure of percussive movement and contrasts it with slow moving pressure against a resistance thicker than air. It explores the heaviness of what is imagined and real. This is set next to lightness with shakes, urgencies, and rhythm. Uncharted creates an environment of its own in the enclosed world of the dance. Choreography is by Chris Ferris. Music is by Loren Kiyoshi Dempster. The dancers are Alli Bradley and Sophia Diehl. This is a fully choreographed piece in contrast to, the other duet to be shown, Space Between the Rivers.


Space Between the Rivers is an improvisation with specific instruction discovering the space and touch between 2 dancers. Moving backwards sensing with specific body parts, they converge at a single point of contact that shifts unpredictably. Interactions have them contradicting one another and then syncing in tandem to present the tiniest focused movements to the audience. Our goal is to draw you into this thought process of improvising with a specific problem. The structure is by Chris Ferris. Music is by Loren Kiyoshi Dempster. The dancers are Alli Bradley and Sophia Diehl.
