“…for those of you that thought contemporary jazz was in danger of dropping off the dance map – think again. The Houston Metropolitan Dance Company … proved, without a doubt, that the contemporary jazz idiom is alive, well and thriving.” Nancy Wozny, dancehunter.blogspot.com, April 2006
Breathtaking, awesome and inspiring, these are but a few of the comments Houston audiences have said about an evening with the Houston Metropolitan Dance Company. Since 1995, the company has presented 15 Seasons of contemporary dance that explodes in movement, color and emotion. The company mixes the most edgy styles of dance and music with the classical into a kaleidoscope of energy all audiences enjoy. Seasoned choreographers such as Robert Battle , Larry Keigwin and Kate Skarpetowska alongside new, young artists like Jason McDole and Joe Celej enjoy working with this strong and versatile company creating works that dance aficionados of all levels love to watch.
“The Met has clearly mastered artistry and creativity. If you didn’t catch them in April, don’t wait another 15 years.” Mandy Oaklander, Houston Press, April 2011
