RIOULT Dance NY recently celebrated its 20th anniversary during the 2013-14 season. It became an established name in modern dance fast after its founding, gaining a reputation for bringing the sensual, articulate and musical dance works of Pascal Rioult to audiences worldwide.
The 12-dancer company, based in New York City, is led by husband-and-wife team Artistic Director/Choreographer Pascal Rioult and Associate Artistic Director Joyce Herring – both former Martha Graham Dance Company principal dancers. With an established repertoire of over 40 dances that expands each year, RIOULT Dance NY presents an annual New York season and tours nationally and abroad. In addition, in-school arts education and community outreach have been integral to the company since its inception, introducing students and families to the art of modern dance.
