Dance Visions was founded by Beth Jucovy in 1990. Devoted to keeping the Isadora Duncan dances and aesthetic alive and current, the company also presents unique, original works which express our shared humanity in our current times. Often works are site-specific or tailored for particular venues or audiences. We bring pure dance works, dance/theater works and narrated, educational programs to local and wider audiences.
