The Syracuse Contemporary Dance Company

The Syracuse Contemporary Dance Company premiered in February of 1986 under the direction of Mary Pat D'Angelo and Patty Brundage. The Company was formed for the purpose of providing an outlet for gifted local choreographers and dancers to have more performing opportunities. The company is a corps of talented choreographers, dancers and technical personnel working to present professional dance to the Syracuse community with a unique opportunity to view and support our local talent in a professional, creative and entertaining atmosphere. 

The Company is the oldest active dance company in Central New York and has a solid reputation for producing quality professional dance concerts. They host open auditions and encourage local choreographers and dancers to participate in the performance regardless of their affiliation with other organizations.


This way they are able to have a diverse variety of original and innovative dance creations performed by local talent. Throughout the years, the Company has enjoyed steady growth. The number of dancers auditioning has increased and audience attendance continues to grow. "SCDC in Concert" has been well received by the community and enjoys excellent reviews from our local newspaper. 

The Company also hosts a Holiday/Winter celebration of dance in December. Auditions for this performance are held in October and are open to Syracuse School of Dance students only (ages 7 and up).
