The ClancyWorks Dance Company (CWDC) is a collective of performing artists directed by Adrienne Clancy. Company members have more than seventeen years of dance and choreographic experience and have held major choreographic, performance, and administrative positions in numerous nationally recognized companies, festivals, and universities. Specific to Clancy's creative process is an exploration of architecturally informed partnering work that is developed with a group of diverse dancers. Her company's approach to partnering is simultaneously dynamic and sensitive; highly physical yet at the same time extremely human. Central to the mission of CWDC is the use of dynamic people partnering in order to exemplify an environment of mutual respect and to create empowering images that embrace diversity and build community.
