Project Description

Nicolay Dance Works is an embarkation on a journey of exploration and reconstruction with a very special group of young artists. Each of these dancers brings unique life experiences, talents and insights to the effort, that illuminate the works in beautiful and unexpected ways. In reanimating works from the past we are finding new meanings in these times and these new bodies. As we create new works we will build on this process to engender new meanings drawn from our collective experience together.

Dana Nicolay drawing on his international background in ballet, contemporary dance and Laban Movement Analysis, strives to create dances that speak clearly and truly of human experience. His body of nearly 50 concert works has produced numerous awards and recognitions from organizations such as the American College Dance Festival Association, Regional Dance America, and the Mid-America Dance Network. He pursues an active free-lance career as a teacher, choreographer, and adjudicator. He holds the MFA in modern dance from TCU, is a Certified Laban/ Bartenieff Movement Analyst and holds the rank full professor of dance at Sam Houston State University.
