Bodies in Action ~ engendering Contemporary Dance” is a community interest company that strives to represent all gender identities in contemporary dance equally. We offer professional dance class, discussions about what we face in society, outreach class (in schools and other charitable purposes).

Bodies in Action is a repertory dance company founded by dancer and choreographer Julian Nichols. As a company, we strive to provide audiences and communities with engaging contemporary dance through professional and recreational class, outreach, general discussion, and performance. As physical bodies, we share our perspective through the lens of a simple yet revolutionary idea: we stand and encourage people to live in their authentic skin without succumbing to societal pressures of conformity. The gender spectrum and sexual orientation have become polarizing in recent times, yet we are all human in the end. To this end, Bodies in Action promotes equality among all despite gender identity, race, age, sexual orientation, body type, and physical ability through both creations and diversity of the company.

Our dance organization aims to expand societal awareness about gender authenticity by tackling stereotypes of what it is to be human. Despite crucial advances in today’s society, there remains an apparent stigma for those that don’t identify as a man or woman or that do not have heterosexual relations. While society continues to expand its acceptance of gender, there are still many unexplored and unimagined possibilities. Bodies in Action pushes our gender forward-thinking through progressive artistic representations about what it means to live and move in a spectrum of gendered ways. Bodies in Action gives an immediate and transparent perspective of bodies integrating through movement without regard to gender by embracing all genders across the spectrum.

To this end, Bodies in Action employs and supports dancers, choreographers, and people that identify across the gender spectrum: transgender, gender-neutral, non-binary, agender, pangender, genderqueer, two-spirit, third gender, male, female, and all, none, or any combination of the above as well as people whose sexual orientation lies within the LGBTQIA+ community.
