Hub Dance Collective (HDC) is committed to presenting you high quality work as well as to sharing the “behind the scenes” part of our choreographic processes. We think that if you know how a dance is made, then you might appreciate the final product more deeply. The voice overs before each piece are intended to give insight and to steer your viewing of the following dance, should you need it.
 
Since 2012, HDC has been Hattiesburg's home for professional contemporary dance, and we have shared the dance talent in Southern Mississippi with the nation by touring to Illinois, Texas, Michigan, New York and Alabama. For these performances, we are so glad to not only feature HDC dances that are created by some familiar HDC members, but also dances performed and choreographed by guest artists.
 
The idea for HDC grew from faculty members at The University of Southern Mississippi’s Department of Dance who wanted to continue choreographing and performing professionally, in addition to producing their work with the student body. Recognizing there was an “arts gap” that a professional contemporary dance company could fill in Hattiesburg, HDC began presenting work as an ensemble in Fall, 2012. Founding HDC company members are: Kelly Ferris Lester, Elizabeth Lentz, Becca McArthur and Stacy Reischman Fletcher.
 
HDC focuses on the collaborative nature of modern dance. We value the inspiration, challenges, and creativity that arise in a collaborative process. We recognize that collaboration fuels each of our individual artistry. This is why our concerts programs are varied in types/style of dance you will see—because we each bring our developed aesthetics and our unique artistic perspectives to the stage. Having trained nationally as individuals, we now are committed to bringing our broad, collective perspectives on dance to the region. By performing our work in Southern Mississippi we grow our local audiences for dance; by touring we increase recognition of the burgeoning contemporary dance scene in our region.
