The Trey McIntyre Project modern dance company, which burst onto the American national dance scene in 2005, uses the inherent beauty of ballet vocabulary to create exuberant dances that authentically and clearly convey the emotion and grace of life’s journey while meaningfully engaging audiences in the experience of art.

Trey McIntyre has become one of the most sought-after choreographers today, creating works for the Stuttgart Ballet, American Ballet Theater, and the New York City Ballet. More information about Trey McIntyre and his company can be found at
