Florida Tour

BLM will be touring to Gainesville in mid-October for a residency at the University of Florida.

We’re being presented by the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to perform 2 shows on October 11: a student matinee and an open-to-the-public evening program. The week prior to the shows, we will be holding masterclasses on campus open to UF students and the Gainesville community.


November / December 2019

Recuperation & Self Care

BLM takes holiday believe it or not. The work of artists comes in waves and we’ve been riding that wave for a bit. Time to hang loose.

2019/20

PiM Company-In-Residence 

BLM begins their 3rd year as Dance Company-in-Residence at the Performing Institute of Minnesota

Formerly Main Street for the Performing Arts, The Performing Institute of Minnesota (PiM) opened their new doors of its arts high school and performance center in Eden Prairie, MN in August 2017. One of its first steps was to invite BLM in as its first ever dance company-in-residence!  BLM has conducted numerous activities at PiM, including a spring performance, bodystorming workshops, choreographic collaborations, an exclusive matinee and mock auditions. PiM also houses our company rehearsals and we often invite student classes in to witness bits of rehearsal processes.


Since 2009

The Moving Cell Project - Year 11

It’s hard to believe but BLM's pioneering collaboration with biomedical engineer David Odde will enter it’s eleventh year in 2020. The project is funded in part by the National Cancer Institute and continues to offer bodystorming workshops in various venues from high schools to the MN State Fair. We continue to explore new ways for scientists and artists to conduct substantive research together.
