About Inlet Dance Theatre

Inlet Dance Theatre is one of the most unique professional contemporary dance companies hailing from the Midwest because Inlet Dance Theatre’s ensemble-based culture, rooted in American Modern Dance, purposefully focuses on craftsmanship and mastery while employing a collaborative creative process in the development of new work. Founded in Cleveland (OH) in 2001 by Executive/Artistic Director Bill Wade, Inlet Dance Theatre embodies his long-standing belief that a collaborative creative process is more inclusive than the traditional autocratic leadership hierarchy and results in work that is surprisingly diverse. Inlet’s repertory intentionally speaks creatively about human life issues in a life-giving manner. The company presents a wide aesthetic range of works, from abstract to narrative, that speaks to what could be rather than only what is. Inlet Dance Theatre develops and teaches people from the inside-out in all of the company’s design-centric programming, “using dance to further people.”
