Mission

Concerto Dance by Jolene Konkel is a technical movement company driven by athleticism and musicality seeking to balance innovation with tradition in a context of community and hope.

We Value...

Technical excellence, drawing upon and expanding codified American dance forms across the genres of jazz and modern dance.​​

Work that seeks to open a door to the human spirit, strengthen and uplift hearts and minds, and connect communities.

Engaging a broad audience through artistically compelling and entertaining concert dance.

The transformative power of dance to communicate across cultures and barriers.

 

Why "Concerto"?

 

Concerto in origin is simply "concert", depicting the companies

mission to bring concert dance works to the stage. 

 

A "concerto", or concert, in the context of music has been explained by Leonard Bernstein as meaning the "togetherness" of the orchestra. Believing we are better together, Concerto Dance by Jolene Konkel seeks togetherness in building connections with each other and the community.

 

Although the word concerto has come to be known as a specific form of music, it embodies our aim as Concerto Dance  to cultivate virtuosic performers expressing technical and artistic excellence,  and our our desire to draw upon and expand rooted codified forms of movement to express the  vibrant and compelling nature of musicality.
