Who We Are

Terre Dance Collective

Terre Dance Collective is a group of movement artists working to create emotionally engaging and physically compelling contemporary dance. Terre was established in July 2017 by Artistic Director Robert Rubama and is based in New York City.

Since its inception, we have developed and presented choreographic and improvisation-based work in various venues across the East Coast & Midwest of the United States. Exploration and collaboration are a large part of our creative work. We believe that movement is the connective tissue of the universe and brings all bodies together.

In 2019, we were the Artists in Residence at the National Building Museum and had the opportunity to collaborate with NYC-based architecture firm The Lab @ Rockwell. Terre Dance Collective was the Fall 2021 Artists in Residence at The Floor on Atlantic (Brooklyn, NY). We have also presented work at the 1Journey Festival (DC), Spaces Gallery (OH), Cleveland Public Theater (OH),The Tank(NYC), Arts on Site (NYC), Kaatsbaan Cultural Park (NY), and The Brick Theater (NYC).
