Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company is known for its charismatic and playfully virtuosic work, blending robust physicality with universally relatable themes. “A flair for the entertaining,” says Elizabeth Zimmer. “Mr. Gwirtzman does know that in dance less can be more. And that’s a good thing for any choreographer to know” writes The New York Times.
Daniel’s choreography has been performed at venues throughout the country and abroad. He has received commissions, residencies and fellowships from institutions including the Joyce Theater Foundation, The Yard, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Raumars (Finland) and the Sacatar Foundation (Brazil). “Founded upon a philosophy that dance should celebrate human achievement through a combination of discipline and unbound optimism” (The New York Sun), DGDC cultivates the creation of innovative art and presents this to the public through multigenerational interactive programming. DGDC thrives on collaborations with community-based organizations throughout and outside of NYC. Contracted with the NYC Department of Education since 1999, the Company has taught dance to over 20,000 students
