National Dance Week - STL - 2013

April 27, 2013

The Big Muddy Dance Company, under the artistic direction of Paula David, is St. Louis' professional contemporary jazz dance company, housed at the Downtown Dance Center in the Old Post Office District in the heart of downtown. The company completed its premiere season in June 2012 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center with two sold out shows and two standing ovations after its finale, "The '40s", by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago founder Lou Conte. As quoted by ALIVE Magazine, "By the end, it was pretty clear from the audience's applause that The Big Muddy Dance Company's first steps were a success."

Currently in its second season, the company employs 14 dancers for a 37 week season, ensuring artistic excellence, continuity of style and technical expertise- bringing its audiences only the best. The Big Muddy Dance Company is committed to producing top-quality performances through an eclectic repertoire and to invigorating life through dance.
