About Us

Dancing People is a professional, national-caliber modern dance company, based right here in Ashland, Oregon. We perform over 40 times a year in the Rogue Valley, from fully produced stage shows, to informal shows in Ashland's beautiful Lithia Park, to our "Call Back The Sun" Winter Solstice celebration.

Robin Stiehm is the Founding Artistic Director and choreographer for DPC. Her work has been described as fluid, musical, emotional - one review said "abstract in the best definition of that elusive term - emotion contained and transfigured by form.”

Contact us here.

Dancing People will be auditioning for make and female dancers, positions beginning January 2015. Find more information HERE  or write to the Artistic Director at

Green Show, September 23, 6:45pm

Coming up soon, catch DPC on the Green Show stage! Although we originally planned to present "Love and Navigation", we've had a couple of injuries, so we're changing the program for our Green Show presentation. Come see three inspired pieces from our repertoire, including Numbers Game, Slippery and Wild and Private, danced with abandon by Veronica, Erin and Brianna. Join us on the Green Show lawn, FREE!
