Taken from 25th Anniversary Program
Nannette Brodie Dance Theatre, a modern dance company of drama, wit, joy and invention capable of moving everyone in their audience, presented their first performance in 1986. The company has performed on a continual basis for the last twenty five years. This performance marks our 25th Anniversary.
Nannette Brodie is the artistic director and principal choreographer for the company. According to Nannette, “Dance should be a celebration, an exploration of ourselves and our environment, of our culture and our world.” NBDT has given performances for over 285,000 people both within the Southern California area and by touring nationally and internationally, averaging 15 to 25 performances a year.
NBDT is a member and frequently showcases for presenters at the Western Arts Alliance Conferences and for the Association for Performing Arts Presenters in New York. NBDT has performed with the music ensemble, Enoch Train, at the Ford Amphitheatre of Hollywood in their evening work entitled, “Heartland—The Immigrant Experience.” This production has toured in California and Utah. The company also collaborated with musicians from Enoch Train on their production of “All Things Irish,” which was presented at the Madrid Theater in Canoga Park, CA. Both productions are available for booking. Within the last 5 years, NBDT has traveled to Arizona and Nevada for residencies and festivals, toured to Iceland and Finland, and completed many educational outreach projects within their community. NBDT has collaborated with the Long Beach Opera for two seasons and will be seen in their upcoming production of Camelia La Tejana in March. And then the company will present the So Cal Dance Invitational at the Ford Amphitheater on August 31, 2013.
