Project21Dance is an innovative, explosive Modern Dance company creating artistic stir throughout Los Angeles and the Inland Empire founded by artistic director Maura Owens Townsend in 1998.

Maura’s energizing choreography fuses multiple styles of dance into harmony: Modern (contemporary explorations and Horton-based technique), ballet, Jazz, and urban movement styles. The dynamic range of styles allows her work to fall on a diverse spectrum of themes, from socially conscious pieces to dances that are musically tantalizing, as well as choreography that encompasses several genres of art. As a “Performing Arts Consortium” Project21Dance puts the spotlight on dance pieces that collaborate with equally rich artistic expressions such as spoken word, multimedia, live musical artists, and various forms of movement and practices such as martial arts and capoeira that bring an extra layer of depth to the rehearsal process and stage.
