Join us on Thursday, June 13th for the Opening Night Celebration of Spring Season at Home and partake in festivities celebrating the culmination LEVYdance's 10th Anniversary Year.
Spring Season at Home is gathering of favorite works from the company’s first decade, freshly re-imagined into an evening-length experience, June 13-16, 2013. Presented on custom-built stages and catwalks on Heron Street, the South of Market alley where LEVYstudio is located, the selection celebrates the roots of what critics call “daring, densely layered, kinesthetically detailed, and emotionally intense choreography.” Spring Season at Home will navigate viewers through the “athletic and lyrical, brainy and sexy” choreographic landscape of Benjamin Levy’s artistry.
The Opening Night Celebration on June 13 extends Spring Season at Home into a full evening block party and VIP event celebrating the culmination of LEVYdance's 10th Anniversary Year. Click here for tickets for performances June 14-16, 8:30pm.

When & Where
“[The] willingness to take risks whether physical or emotional, whether it’s a big vision for the company’s future or diving off the end of a stage, is what defines LEVYdance.” —San Francisco Chronicle
Since its founding by Benjamin Levy more than a decade ago, LEVYdance has developed into a nationally-recognized performing arts organization that serves the San Francisco dance community as a creative incubator, community space and innovative arts presenter. The company is recognized for producing cutting-edge, interdisciplinary, interactive works that explore the nuances of being human. Its values of risk-taking and rigorous creative development, and its aesthetics of inherently kinetic dance that balances form and raw emotional experience, resonate throughout all programs of the organization.
In 2007, LEVYdance founded LEVYstudio, a 3200 square-foot converted warehouse in San Francisco’s SoMa District, which houses a dynamic array of community engagement and artist research programs. In 2013, LEVYdance conducted capital upgrades to its building, and strengthened the organization’s mission through an increased diversity of classes and resources that support emerging and established artists. The dance company, from its early successes to this day, enjoys a well-regarded artistic profile locally and nationally, and continues to cultivate robust relationships with presenters and collaborators alike.
In 2015 LEVYdance transitioned to an exciting and ambitious chapter in its development, welcoming Garance Marneur as Executive Artistic Director to lead the organization into its next phase. As Executive Artistic Director, Marneur will steward LEVYdance into its second decade of artistic excellence, strengthening current programs, inviting the participation of a greater array of artistic voices, and creating new partnerships for creative and community collaborations. As Marneur steps into her role, bringing considerable assets and extensive international contacts, LEVYdance Founder Benjamin Levy transitions from active leadership to an advisory role, acting as a resource for LEVYdance’s new leadership and participating in long-term strategic governance of the organization as a member of the Board of Directors.
“LEVYdance is a contemporary company that takes creative risks, values strong modern dance technique, and successfully marries form and content in composition. Possessing all of these qualities and characteristics is less common than you would think; in fact, it is quite rare. LEVYdance is special, and another ten years of their work would be a gift to the larger modern dance community.” – Ballet Dance Magazine
