CoreDance Contemporary is an Australian modern dance company residing in New York City. Founded by Artistic Director Rebecca McCormac in 2011, the company is comprised of six dance artists who bring different cultural and dance backgrounds to the fore, to form a hardworking and dedicated ensemble. CoreDances objective is to investigate choreographically, different and oft times contradictory movement vocabulary through the physicality of one’s kinetics and to explore the realization of this physicality as it takes form in the space. Ms McCormac has an interdisciplinary approach to her work drawing ideas both contextually and visually to create work that is engaging for herself and her audience. Her work has been shown at APAP, Your Move NJ, Alvin Ailey, Steps on Broadway, DANY Studios, PMT, Dixon Place, White Wave, Triskelion Arts, The Actors Fund Arts Center and Green Space.
