The Big Muddy Dance Company

The Big Muddy Dance Company is a repertory dance company that showcases high caliber artistic experiences. By engaging both emerging and world-renowned choreographers, collaborating across the community through outreach, and training future performers through our educational programs, we constantly strive to invigorate life through dance.

Founded in 2010 and now under the artistic direction of Kirven Douthit-Boyd, The Big Muddy has grown into a nationally recognized organization with strong roots in its home of St. Louis, MO. In addition to providing meaningful residency experiences, the company presents versatile world-class repertoire on the stage, showcasing the grace and athleticism of our 16 company dancers.

Residency programs may include company performances, in-studio experiences, Q&A sessions, senior citizen outreach performances and workshops, master classes in various techniques, arts administration offerings, and more.
