CalliOpus Contemporary was founded in May 2018. It is a contemporary dance company with their roots in the Temecula/Murrieta Valley area.
The name is derived as a fusion of the words Calliope and Opus. Calliope, being beautifully voiced, is the muse of epic poetry and eloquence in Greek Mythology. Opus refers to an artistic work, especially one on a large scale.
Our mission is To foster a safe space where individuals can come together to create stimulating, multidisciplinary works of art, inspired by the muses we find in our everyday life.
We strive to unite community and art by regularly hosting open rehearsals and bringing in an array of choreographers to create and set work.
