Dancers of Cincinnati

The Dancers of Cincinnati Project will celebrate the diverse dance community represented in Cincinnati. This year we are nominating local dance groups. Student to professional to patron, dance has impacted so many in our community and changed so many lives. This project will tell the stories and feature portraits of Greater Cincinnati dance groups from all styles and walks of life. Together, we will celebrate the tapestry of these dancers in our beautiful city and share how dance has impacted their lives. Nominate a group to be featured in this exciting project!
