Guest Artists

Academic Year 2018-19

Shapiro & Smith Dance is fascinated with ideas and experiences that define us as individuals, families and societies. “Supple as snakes and brave beyond belief,” we perform tales of absurdity and beauty with outrageous athleticism, caustic wit and psychological insight. “Hilarious and provocative, these story-tellers take you for a plunge into the human condition.” Through outreach and performance, we mine stories of who we are individually to showcase how exceptional we can be collectively. We have brought this unique blend of comedy and tragedy to stages and communities throughout the U.S.
