NobleMotion Dance receives a Mid-America Arts Alliance 

Artistic Innovations Grant

NobleMotion Dance is excited to announce that the organization received an Artistic Innovations grant from the Mid-America Arts Alliance for its upcoming production of Catapult at The Hobby Center August 25 & 26, 2017. This regional grant is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Wingate Charitable Foundation. M-AAA’s “esteemed” Artistic Innovations grants were awarded to 21 projects in five states. NobleMotion is proud to be one of the organizations selected to represent this region in “the creation of groundbreaking new artistic work.”

Dance Meets Design

Catapult combines the ingenuity, calculation, and craftsmanship of industrial design professionals with contemporary dance to showcase the exciting possibilities of integrating tailor-made interactive structures in performance. As part of the programming for the Artistic Innovation grant, NMD will conduct the Structure: Dance Meets Design class series where professional designers and choreographers will work with 9-17 year olds in the construction of their own movement and structural designs.

“M-AAA has given us a really wonderful opportunity to deepen our investigation and scope of the project. We are so grateful for the support. I hope everyone will come and see this one-of-a-kind performance.” ~ Artistic Director Dionne Noble

NobleMotion Dance named "Best Dance Company"

Houston Press

“An audacious single-take capture of a modern dance performance, a beautifully performed thing unto itself that sensually expressed themes of community and divisiveness, exposure and hiddenness, relational violence and fraught intimacy, alienation and loneliness.”

Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly Review of American Crime

“Nobles’ work had so many intricacies and illusions that were very pleasing to watch, that I could not help but muse over how it all came together.”

Tara Sheena, Dance Informa Review
