Pulse Dance Company is the resident performing company at Studio Pulse Center for Dance and is a not-for-profit organization with the mission of community enrichment through dance. The Company is dedicated to the creation and performance of innovative new dance works by emerging and accomplished local and international choreographers.
Our organization forges deeper connections between artists and audiences through the presentation, conversation, and education of dance to both new and experienced viewers. Pulse Dance Company blurs the lines between contemporary dance and dance theatre, and provides continued training and performance opportunities for adult dancers. Pulse hosts annual community dance events while creating lively and relevant works utilizing Alaskan talent.
A nine-year track record of critically acclaimed productions, classes, and popular outreach programs has made Pulse an integral part of contemporary dance in Alaska. The company has been generously supported by the Atwood Foundation, Rasmuson Foundation, The Alaska State Council on the Arts and forward-thinking patrons.
