Past Engagements

Wideman Davis Dance was integral to the success of Ballet Austin’s The Monologue Project. On each campus, Tanya and Thaddeus were able to build an environment of trust and respect which led to authentic commitment and participation from the students. This was essential to the success of the project. Working in a highly collaborative way; they offer creative and innovative thought, and understand the dynamic balance that defines and drives productive exploration and true collaboration among multiple artists and organizations. —Michelle Martin Associate Artistic Director Ballet Austin
