FuturPointe was formed in Nov. 2009 as an initiative to broaden the appeal and spectatorship of contemporary dance. FuturPointe Dance is a fusion company - combining dancers and choreographic styles from a variety of genres and training, including modern dance, popular/social/folk dance, Caribbean, African, Latin, and ballet. The company's aesthetic crosses into multiple art forms as well, including multi-media collaborations with videographers, visual artists, composers, musicians, puppeteers, and costumers.
The company roster is culturally diverse, with dancers hailing from Jamaica, Guyana, the Ukraine, New Orleans, and New York. Though we are a young company, we collectively have a broad and extensive base of professional dance experience, and the company has already toured and performed in national venues. Weekly classes are open to the Rochester community, and company members are actively involved in residencies and performances that educate, entertain, and promote the vitality and global presence of contemporary dance.
Current company members include: N’Jelle Gage, William J. Knighten, Melinda Phillips, Heather Roffe, and Guy Thorne. The Company apprentice is Olga Kravets. The company is co-directed by Guy Thorne, Heather Roffe and N’Jelle Gage.
