Gallim Dance, one of New York’s leading contemporary dance companies, creates and performs the work of Artistic Director Andrea Miller. Since 2007, Gallim has presented Miller’s artistic vision through its performances, collaborations, educational programs, and Brooklyn studio projects. Miller’s uncompromising creative language—which exerts every drop of sweat, every breath, and full abandonment from a virtuosic and fearless company of dancers—brings these works to life. The “delicious strangeness, fierce aggression, and raw beauty” (New York Press) of Gallim Dance and its dancers celebrates the human spirit and it's restless hunger for life. While deeply rooted in dance expression, Gallim is a unique set of cultural ethos, drawing upon elements of theater, visual art, film, and political philosophy. Gallim's Brooklyn studio is a home for the creative process, collaboration, a community of artists and a commitment to education in the arts.
Gallim has been recognized by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, The Harkness Foundation for Dance, Princess Grace Foundation-USA, The Shubert Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and New York State Council on the Arts for the strength of Miller’s artistic work and the organization. It has also received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President for its Brooklyn studio community programming.
The company is highly sought after to perform world wide including The Metropolitan Museum, Lincoln Center, The Joyce, BAM, Grec Festival de Barcelona, Theatre National de Chaillot, The Grand Theatre de la Ville de Luxembourg and Theaterhaus Stuttgart among others. Gallim is frequently commissioned for dance, film, commercial work and collaborations including Carmina Burana performed by Gallim Dance and the National Gay Men's Choir at The Kennedy Center, the film "The Life and Death of Mic Rock", a site specific work for Hermes at the Glass House among others.
