Shay Ishii Dance Company has been sharing classic and historic modern dance with Austin and Central Texas since 2006. SIDC has performed and presented work across Texas and Hawaii, Scotland, France, England, and New York, where they were featured as the finale for the Erick Hawkins Centennial Celebration at the 92nd Street Y. SIDv is committed to creating and presenting dance as an artistic experience that moves and inspires its audience. Our vision is to create dance that is sheer beauty, dance that is enlightening, dance that is an experience in truth, art and humanity… dance that succinctly reminds us of the beauty and light that exists within us, around us, and among us.
