St. George Dance Co., formerly known as Summer and Co., was founded by Summer Belnap Robertson in 2001. The group performed at venues throughout New York City including PeriDance, Dance Space, Wax Works and Dixon Place. After ten years on the east coast, Summer returned to her home town of St. George, Utah. Inspired by the beautiful landscapes and fellow dancers in southern Utah, the company was renamed the St. George Dance Co in 2008. The choreography of the St. George Dance Company has been described as innovative, witty and whimsical, yet accessible to all audiences.
The Mission of the St. George Dance Company is to:
Create innovative work that connects with, inspires, captivates and intellectually stimulates ALL audiences.
Provide a performance venue for modern dancers and choreographers in the southwest region.
Educate the public and bring contemporary dance to the forefront as an accessible and valued art form through performances, lecture demonstrations and collaborations with other artists.
