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.”

Dance In The Park, Aug.9-10 6:30pm

Mark your calendars! It's summer, which means its time for our free shows at the Lithia Park Bandshell. Bring a picnic, brings your friends, bring your kids and enjoy an evening of delightfuldance in one of the most beautiful settings to be found.

Highlights include an improvisation with cellist Michal Palzewicz and the Ashland premiere of "Wild and Private" created in honor of our friend, Lita Jans.

Green Show, September 23

Later in the summer, catch DPC on the Green Show stage, where we'll present "Love and Navigation" inspired by our local community's experiences with love, gathered through a series of interviews. How do we navigated the minefield of love? How do we resolve the mystery of "relationship"?
