Hub Dance Collective is a new group founded by five dance faculty members from the University of Southern Mississippi. HDC creates professional choreographic and performance opportunities for its collaborating artists, while bringing the highest quality modern dance shows to its audiences. Independently our works have been presented in New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, New Zealand, Wales, South Africa and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, and we have performed across the nation, and in Mexico, Brazil, and France. We now find ourselves in Southern Mississippi, a region known for its blues and literature, but not its modern dance. Hub Dance Collective was formed to change this.

Hub Dance Collective focuses on the collaborative nature of modern dance. We value the inspiration, challenges, and creativity that come in a collaborative process, recognizing that in such collaboration each of our individual artistry is fed. Having trained nationally, we now bring a broad perspective on dance to out work and strive to create our highest quality modern dances. By performing our work in Southern Mississippi we grow our local audiences for dance; by touring we increase recognition of the burgeoning modern dance scene in our region.
