Chamber Dance Project, dancers & musicians

Washington DC’s premier contemporary ballet company with live music

Diane Coburn Bruning, Artistic Director

Claudia Chudacoff, Principal Musician


Chamber Dance Project’s seventh Washington season brings together nine dancers from leading ballet companies, our resident string quartet, and guest musical artists in a program that reflects the company’s creative range, powerfully daring dancing, and signature approach to the collaboration of dancers and musicians together onstage.

Four world premieres including choreography by Claudia Schreier, who recently premiered a ballet with Dance Theatre of Harlem, Colin Gee, a recent Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, Diane Coburn Bruning, Artistic Director of Chamber Dance Project, and company dancer Cooper Verona, who unveils his world premiere of In the Silence with a glorious Arvo Pärt score.

Returning works include the popular Chant with live Gregorian chant and the beautiful and poignant Arranged, as well as the DC premiere of the powerful male solo Sarabande.
