Amalgamate Dance Company (Amalgamate) exists to raise awareness around significant topics and events that affect human development through authentic storytelling. Amalgamate uses “dance for a purpose” to educate, entertain, transform, and inspire our audiences.
Since the company’s founding in 2005, as founding Artistic Director, Alana Marie Urda’s contemporary choreography has ignited audiences across the country with incredible stories, raw emotion, unique aesthetics & fearless partnering.
As our name indicates, we seek to amalgamate, or merge, dance with specific client-based needs and produce groundbreaking projects around the globe. Amalgamate is known for collaborative outreach efforts, tailoring choreography for charities, churches, and community centers. The company’s past Arts-in-Education efforts have used dance to creatively engage students in subject material, develop critical thinking & collaborative learning.
Amalgamate was formed to create more opportunities for dance artists and provide an outlet for authentic expression while serving and engaging the community. We are committed to influencing and reaching millions of lives through the art of dance.
Currently, Amalgamate produces our Fall/Spring NYC Season Shows, Bi-Annual Amalgamate Artist Series, Bi-Annual Guest Artist Showcase, 3-Day Summer Intensive NY Workshop, ITALY Study Abroad Program, ITALY Yoga Retreat, Seasonal Youth Charity Projects, and our booming Internship program.
