Our Mission is to cultivate immersive dance experiences that engage, inspire, and connect various communities.
Founded in 2011 by Artistic Director Nicole A. Martinell, Deep Vision Dance Company, Inc. (DVDC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to producing high quality choreographic work in the Baltimore/DC area while creating a home for dancers, collaborating with local artists, and educating the community in the creative process. Martinell's choreography immerses audiences into a unique world that highlights the flux of human emotions, arouses curiosity, and challenges one's view of reality. DVDC choreography has been featured at such Baltimore/DC venues as Theatre Project, Baltimore Museum of Art, Towson University, Goucher College, Creative Alliance, Dance Place, and Joe's Movement Emporium as well as up the east coast. Also highly active in the community, DVDC organizes workshops, classes, improvisation jams, and mentorship programs that focus on creation and collaboration. In 2012, DVDC (under the creative direction of Martinell and Sidney Pink) founded AKIMBO Dance & Movement Art Festival, an interdisciplinary, site-specific festival in Baltimore City's Station North Arts & Entertainment District.
Deep Vision Dance Company is proud to have an established collaboration with Towson University Community Dance and to be a resident company within Towson University's Department of Dance. The artistic intersection of these entities thrives on the joint mission of nurturing a community of artists by providing quality artistic experiences for dancers through workshops, performances, and classes; growing and enhancing the Baltimore arts scene; and upholding dance as an appreciated, intellectual art form that encourages risk taking, self-awareness, and personal fulfillment.
Our Vision is to enrich the field of dance by fostering a community that encourages artistic growth and personal discovery.
