CAROLYN DORFMAN DANCE COMPANY (CDDC) is a Union, NJ based dance company now celebrating its 30th Season. The Company, described as “ingenious” (Star-Ledger) and “emotionally resonant” (New York Times) presents the works of Carolyn Dorfman, and nationally known choreographers.
With bold athleticism, dramatic nuance, and musical range, CDDC’s high-energy and technically demanding repertory uses movement as metaphor to take audiences on intellectual and emotional journeys. Hailed, too, as a consummate storyteller, Dorfman, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, has also created a celebrated body of work that honors her Jewish legacy- its trials and triumphs, its treasured uniqueness and, most importantly, its universal connections.
The company’s ten dancers (“with a four octave range” (Doug Elkins)) compose a uniquely talented contemporary dance ensemble, highly acclaimed for its artistic excellence and range as well as its extraordinary ability to communicate to audiences about dance and the creative process. CDDC appears at major theaters, dance festivals, universities and schools worldwide, and is lauded for its artistry and exceptional arts education and community programming.
