In The Community

At The Big Muddy Dance Company, we take pride in invigorating the lives of everyone in the community through dance. Through activities such as our Senior Embrace program, open classes, and our Summer Intensive, we have expanded our reach to those that may not be able to attend a performance in a local theater. Our constant drive is to get St. Louis dancing with us, while investing in the future of dance.
