Nugent Dance provokes and entertains through choreography, theater, and improvisation conceived by Stephanie Nugent and other contemporary artists. Through concert presentations, community workshops, and public discussions, addressing provocative subjects from gender and identity to violence and religion, we foster socially conscious insight, community engagement, communication, and tolerance through the arts.
