“…the modern-dance version of an eloquent short-story writer.”
-Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times

“..uncommonly committed performers in choreography as vivid and true as a Eudora Welty story.”
-Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times

Cora Inc. which includes Cora Dance – the professional company – and Cora School for Dance – the educational outgrowth of that company exists to support the choreographic and educational vision of dance artist Shannon Hummel. Hummel’s collaborative vision for making and teaching dance is rooted in the belief that collaboration is most successful when diverse artistic points of view are given a respectful environment in which they can be shared, appreciated and utilized. Therefore, Cora constantly explores how to better serve its artists financially, physically and emotionally so that a rich environment where individual artistry may flourish can exist, thus strengthening the work of the group.

“Hummel creates an affecting world. The results are enormously sophisticated. The choreography quivers with subtle emotions like the writing of Virginia Woolf.”
-Tobi Tobias, The Village Voice
