Mission Statement

Dance Iquail uses the art of dance as a conduit for combating issues of social injustice primarily experienced by the disadvantaged. 

Vision Statement

Working in the universal language of movement, DIQ is committed to creating and presenting programs that confront the destructive and divisive nature of racism, sexism, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, the needs of the poor, and the importance of family support and unity. These debilitating problems affect all people because they transcend limitations of ethnicity, gender, or social status. Consequently, DIQ’s ultimate priority is to reflect those beliefs through its works, and through the diversity of it staff, on and off-stage.


(uplift) the level of appreciation, understanding, and execution of the art of dance through concerts and lectures.


the lives of audiences by producing innovative and thought-provoking works by groundbreaking artists.


by developing education and community outreach programs (i.e. master classes, workshops, Q&A discussions and artistic exchange programs).


the creative abilities of cutting-edge artists working in visual arts, music, technology, lighting design and costuming to develop dynamic multi-media works of art.
