Bold and ambitious, Stephen Petronio Company provokes creativity by embracing the past, present, and future within the field of dance.

The New York City-based Company's three signature programs include: Bloodlines, preserving historic American masterworks; the creation of choreographer Stephen Petronio’s powerful, original dance works, in collaboration with leading music, fashion, and visual artists; and the Petronio Residency Center for support of future choreographic and collaborative activity.
