The mission of Gibney Dance is to bring the possibility of movement where it otherwise would not exist.
Gina Gibney launched Gibney Dance in 1991 to both create contemporary choreography that expresses the humanity of the moving body and to reach communities in need. Since its inception, the Company has created a repertory of over thirty dance works.
Highly sought-after by a wide range of performing arts institutions, her work has been featured in recent years by such venues as Danspace Project (New York), White Bird (Oregon) the Yale Repertory Theater (Connecticut), L’Agora de la Danse (Montreal, Canada), and Internationale Tanzmesse (Dusseldorf, Germany). Ms. Gibney has been honored with the Northern Ohio Live Arts Award, the Copperfoot Award for Choreography from Wayne State University, the Case Western Reserve University Young Alumni Award, Alpert Award (Finalist), the OTTY (Our Town Thanks You) Arts Award, and by Sanctuary for Families, Safe Horizon, and The Retreat. In April 2008, her company was named to the Vanity Fair Hall of Fame for “making art and taking action.”
