Gallim Dance is one of New York's leading contemporary dance companies and is dedicated to creating and performing original works by Artistic Director Andrea Miller, nurturing the careers of young artists through outreach and education programs, and stimulating the imagination of a diverse international audience.
Since 2007, Gallim has presented Miller’s artistic vision through its performances, collaborations, educational programs, and Brooklyn studio projects. With each new work, Gallim dives deeper into singular explorations of universal struggles such as love, spirituality, and the tensions between the individual and collective experience. 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 celebrates the human spirit. 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. In 2015, Gallim was featured on four "Best of 2015" critic's lists for three different works performed in New York, DC and San Francisco - WHALE, Blush and Pupil Suite.
Gallim performs annually at premier venues including The Joyce Theater, Lincoln Center, BAM, The Kennedy Center, New York City Center, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Peak Performances at Montclair State University, Spoleto Festival, and White Bird. International venues include the Grec Festival de Barcelona, Théâtre National de Chaillot, Teatro Nacional de Panama, the Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg, and Theaterhaus Stuttgart.
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, the Howard Gilman Foundation, Jerome Robbins Foundation and New York State Council on the Arts, among others, for the strength of Miller’s artistic work and the administration. Gallim's community programs receive support from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President.
