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.
