ALDT is an all women’s contemporary dance company (founded by choreographer Marissa Alma Nick) creating an empowered voice for women through the language of movement, and bringing contemporary dance to the millennial generation.

The company was founded in 2014 and premiered their first official public performance for the Miami Design District: Miami Art Week with their site-specific performance of “Transpositions: Over Many Miles”, in collaboration with visual artist Paula Crown. In just two years, the company has performed for the national festival Dance USA and they have been named the “freshest dance troupe in Miami” by The Huffington Post. They have produced and premiered two main stage productions, screen dances and site-specific performances; and Marissa Alma Nick (and Alma Dance Theater) have been a feature artist for Art Basel Miami, Tigertail Productions, Filmgate Miami and Grass Stains. Most recently the company is a recipient of the 2017 Knight Arts Challenge – in order to produce their first tour of the contemporary dance-theater show about dementia “Flowers For Spring”. They have also signed with Pentacle Booking Agency and will be presented at the 2017 APAP.
