Founded in 1998, Valerie Green/Dance Entropy believes in humanizing movement, both in Ms. Green’s critically acclaimed choreographic work and the company’s mission to plant creative seeds in communities across the world. Intersecting mortal and transcendent, sensual and sophisticated, visceral and self-aware, VG/DE invites the artist, the audience—the human—into a compelling, physical experience. Based out of its home studio, Green Space in Queens, NY, VG/DE combines performance and specialized outreach programs to inspire communities in cultural institutions throughout the world. As a professional nonprofit dance company, the communities we engage with have included at risk youth, adolescents, trauma survivors, the disabled, senior citizens and aspiring/professional dancers.

The VG/DE Mission

  • Create a platform for multicultural understanding through dance

  • Nurture connections between dance creation and education

  • Build community among dance artists

  • Foster physicality, creativity and empowerment in underserved communities

Dance Entropy is a vital asset to Western Queens and has helped expand access to the arts and dance in the surrounding community.
