Treehouse Shakers

treehouse_logo_color_R_1_184xTreehouse Shakers, a non-profit dance and theater company, is committed to creating work that encourages people to experience their feelings and their connection to the greater community. Treehouse Shakers’ work experiments with narrative styles and explores the story’s elements through the abstractions of modern dance. With each new piece, we challenge ourselves as artists to not only create the highest caliber of work, but also create work that will stimulate, connect and entertain our audience members. Our young audience programming is a natural outgrowth of these artistic goals and techniques. Treehouse Shakers is unique in its offering young audiences a guided look at modern dance through powerful and meaningful theater. Our work is sometimes the first performance many young people experience. We want to sharpen their aesthetics as they are entertained, challenged, and engaged, while at the same time expanding their knowledge of various art forms.
