Launched in 2015, Capital Dance Project (CDP) is an independent collective of professional dancers with a mission to uplift the spirit of the Sacramento community through inclusive, innovative, and collaborative performing arts experiences. CDP fulfills its mission by providing a platform for its resident choreographers to create world premiere works in collaboration with local visual artists and musicians, and by making dance accessible to everyone through community outreach and engagement. CDP represents the fulfillment of its founding members’ shared dream to create a uniquely dancer-run company, providing employment for professional dancers and choreographers, as well as the opportunity to develop skillsets in all areas of running the project beyond the stage.
