Our Mission

Contemporary West Dance Theater is dedicated to preserving and presenting the work of generations of great artists, choreographers and teachers, as well as, showcasing the work of emerging talent in a broad spectrum of dance styles. CWDT seeks to maintain a world-class performing arts company, creating multicultural opportunities to build artistic bridges beyond our borders. Through educational outreach programs, CWDT seeks out at-risk youth and provides a path to confidence, discipline, and excellence that will benefit the youth and their community way beyond their participation in the dance program.

CWDT will bring the elegance, grace, discipline, and dignity that is dance to all classes, all cultures, all walks of life

Our Vision

It is our vision that the Contemporary West Dance Theater and its artists become distinguished ambassadors of America through the universal language of dance. Based in Las Vegas and proud to be part of its legend, we seek to bridge cultural divides and connect to art forms around the world using the powers of mind, body, and spirit, translated into dance.

Dance is the spoken word of movement and is part of the culture of almost every civilization in the world. Through the sharing of dance’s many rituals, we envision sharing Las Vegas with the world and bringing back a little of the world in return.
