Chamber Dance Project burst onto the Washington scene in June with a critically-acclaimed season at the Kennedy Center. Founded in 2000 in New York, Chamber Dance Project has made Washington its new home, bringing together high-caliber professional ballet dancers, musicians, choreographers and composers to collaborate under the Artistic Direction of award-winning choreographer Diane Coburn Bruning. The keystones of CDP are live music, intimate performance spaces, sharing the creative process and affording hundreds of children and families access to a performance during its popular Family Matinee. Last year CDP donated over 200 tickets to area social service agencies.

Discover Chamber Dance Project
  • Chamber Dance Project has been giving audiences the rare opportunity to see ballet, traditionally an art of distance, up close…Diane Coburn Bruning insists on live music and inventive choreographer which often stretches classical lines in engaging new directions. She works with the best.

    Erika Kinetz
    The New York Times
  • The idea of chamber ballet is so appealing…even more when you add dancers who are technically superb…CDP comes as close to fulfilling these expectations as I’ve seen.

    Susan Yung
    The Dance Insider
  • It was clever, and witty, but had a real bite…fortunately the modern edge didn’t disintegrate into ultra cool…she created some interesting, jagged, yet flowing shapes…this innovative and honorable respect for music contributed to a very interesting evening.
