Zaman Dance Theatre Collective

This collaborative of artists and educators is committed to a diverse, humanistic, and globally astute presentation of art, through movement, prose, and supporting art forms.


About the Company


In January of 2010 Zaman Dance Theatre Collective was commissioned to be the resident dance company of the JCC MetroWest Gaelen Center for the Arts, in an effort to expand professional dance programming and artist collaboration in the MetroWest and surrounding areas.  

The newly formed collective is quickly emerging and has been commissioned to perform their works throughout the NYC metropolitan area, internationally, and to underserved populations in the Essex County MetroWest community.


In 2010 Zaman Dance Theatre hosted the 1st Annual Essex County MetroWest Dance Festival –In Celebration of National Dance Week, which features the works of professional and student dance artists throughout the state of New Jersey. The collective also hosts Modern Renaissance X, an annual evening of collaborative works by New Jersey dance and interdisciplinary artists. Zaman Dance Theatre is currently in its 3rd season and recently jumpstarted their Global Dance Initiative in the Western Cape of South Africa, in July of 2012. The company will be expanding its educational and outreach programming for the 2013-2014 season.
