Organization’s Mission, a brief History:
WHITE WAVE is a non-profit arts organization established in 1988. WHITE WAVE’s mission is to be a potent stimulus for change and expansion of the dance/arts world through the creation of new dance works, production of dance concerts, and education and outreach through dance classes. WHITE WAVE accomplishes its mission by providing opportunities for dancers and choreographers to create, rehearse, perform their art and network with each other, and by engaging the local dance community in an ongoing arts dialogue, carrying dance and art forward through sharing and collaboration.
