ArcTangent Dance stands in solidarity against racism, prejudice and bigotry. There is no justice without peace. All lives don't matter until Black lives matter. 

We strive to create work that is actively inclusive. We will continue to actively question and investigate our frustrations and emotions while actively listening to BIPOC friends and artists. 

Maya Angelou

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.



Creativity. Power. Artistry.



Our Mission

ArcTangent Dance is a professional dance company based in San Jose, CA that strives to challenge the conventional wisdoms of our beloved medium, dance. We aim to create work that not only facilitates empathy between humans through unique audience experiences, but also provide exhilarating modes of expression for our movement artists through performances, community outreach and online platforms.

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.
