Our Vision

Bringing dance to Grand Rapids in a new way


GRDE is a contemporary dance company that seeks to cultivate and encourage creativity through choreography and movement.  We strive to create thought-provoking art that is inspired by the human experience.  GRDE seeks to educate our audience and to encourage a broadening of worldview, to recognize our common humanity, and be to able interpret life through new perspectives. We believe this is achieved through the medium of contemporary dance.
