555 Contemporary Dance Company

555 Contemporary Dance Company is a DreamMaker project of The Ink People. Established in 2015, 555 strives to pull the audience into another world during a performance. Sometimes quirky (I.e., "Raynbo Konnekshun", "Drunk Hobos"), sometimes tragically emotional (I.e., "Reue", "Hope", "Persist") and sometimes a little scary (I.e. "Shadows", "Shadows Part II: The Possession"). 555 is a troupe that believes dance is not just entertainment, but an endeavor to relate to the audience as a kindred spirit using the purest of art forms in which the artist becomes the art itself.
