Ormao Dance Company Best Of

Best of 2013: Dance Studio

Ormao Dance Company founder Jan Johnson says she loves that "dance is a language that's universal, especially modern dance. It's a limitless movement vocabulary." Cross-collaborating with visual artists, musicians and theater professionals, Ormao seeks to extend that vocabulary to other art forms. Johnson even runs a curriculum-based program called Mathtastic: Dancing with Mathematics, wherein elementary-school-aged visual learners can see the concepts of shape, geometry, rhythm and patterns performed live by Ormao dancers. She describes Ormao's core performers as "really beautiful, powerful and passionate women" of all ages, from recent college graduates to moms who bring the richness of their life experience to the stage. In addition to performance, this repeat winner offers classes for all ages, from creative movement to hip-hop, jazz and ballet. — Darcie Mankell
