About the Company
Caleb Teicher & Company (CT&Co), founded in 2015, seeks to expand the capacity of musically-driven dance through innovative choreography, performance, and contextualization. The company’s work represents a unique style of theatricality, humor, emotional expression, and aesthetic exploration.
Whether tap dancing with a live beatboxer or to Bach’s Goldberg Variations, swing dancing to Ella Fitzgerald’s famous recordings or to a new contemporary score by pianist Conrad Tao, audiences have warmed to CT&Co’s daring, interdisciplinary work.
Past engagements include The Joyce Theater, the Guggenheim Museum (NYC and Bilbao), Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Fall For Dance at New York City Center, White Bird, Celebrity Series Boston, UNCW, University Musical Society, ADF at DanceCleveland, Gibney Dance, Queens College, The Yard on Martha’s Vineyard, LaMaMa Experimental Theater Club, and the American Tap Dance Foundation, amongst others.
