A Safe Place...
Refuge Dance Company was founded out of a need - a need for a safe place for dancers to come, be inspired, grow as artists, and embrace who they are meant to be. Wherever she went, Artistic Director Katherine Gant kept meeting dancers unable to find a place to call home. She felt called to create such a place - a refuge.
It began in 2006 as a group of friends getting together to take class, try out ideas, work through the joys and struggles of life, and grow as a group and as individuals. By early 2007 the group of friends had grown into a company meeting on a regular basis and officially became a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2009
Following a brief hiatus, Refuge is once again working to provide a safe place where love and grace are the building blocks upon which everything is based.\
