Bellingham Repertory Dance is a collective of accomplished dancers dedicated to bringing high-quality, vibrant contemporary dance to Bellingham, WA. As a dancer-driven organization, BRD members share performance, administrative, marketing, production, and artistic direction duties.
Established in 2005, BRD has built a reputation for producing fresh, engaging, diverse, audience-pleasing concerts that appeal both to established contemporary dance enthusiasts as well as to new audiences. Our strategy is to choose pre-seen choreographic works for our repertory – pieces that have already been performed and were received favorably by audiences. To date, the company has worked with many regionally and nationally recognized choreographers including Wade Madsen, Mary Sheldon-Scott, Marlo Ariz, Joy French, Josh Beamish, Deborah Wolf, Melissa Rolnick, Gina & Kyle Sorensen, Pablo Cornejo, Michele Miller, Dionne Noble, Andrea Shelley, Kevin Jenkins, Daniel Stark, Mari Meade, Lauren Edson, Lindsey Drury, Daniel Stark, Paige Barnes, Darion Smith, Monica Campbell, Ryan Corriston, Eva Stone, Mark Haim, Rachel Lincoln, Cyrus Khambatta, Kate Wallich, Kate Digby & Holly Jaycox, Andy Noble, Daniel Costa, Shannon Mockli, and many others.
As Bellingham continues to gain stature as an artistic community, we hope to also grow and continue to bring great dance works to local and new audiences to contemporary dance.
BRD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. All of the dancers’ time is donated – none are paid. For funding we rely on ticket sales and fundraising events, as well as monetary and in-kind donations from friends, family, and supporters of dance. Please visit our support page to make a donation. Bellingham Repertory Dance creates opportunities for accomplished dancers in our community to perform sophisticated, audience accessible works, and holds annual auditions to join the company.
