Sean Dorsey Dance’s dances are powerful explorations of human experience. Dorsey’s works are a fusion of full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling and theater. Highly physical, accessible, rooted in story, and danced with precision and guts and deep humanity, Dorsey’s works have been praised as “exquisite…poignant and important” (BalletTanz), “trailblazing” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “evocative, compelling, elegant” (LA Weekly).

Sean Dorsey Dance is currently touring two evening-length works (both are currently touring to 20 cities – contact with inquiries):



A new evening of dances that unpack masculinity with unflinching honesty-- from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives



A powerful dance-theater work that gives voice to longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic.
