Companies / Dana Gingras / Animals of Distinction

Company Presentation

Established in 2006, Animals of Distinction is a multi-media dance company founded by artistic director Dana Gingras, co-founder of wildly acclaimed The Holy Body Tattoo, as a vehicle of artistic expression and exploration for her independent work.

As a dance artist, Dana Gingras is drawn to amplifying the sense of physical possibility, what bodies are capable of and allowing that to become manifold and present in the most innovative fashion possible. Dance is fundamentally a condition of risk and an embrace of that risk.
