Micha Scott Dances!

  • Santa Cruz County Veterans Memorial Building 846 Front Street Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States

MICHA SCOTT DANCES! is the name of a new, interactive show with choreography created by Micha Scott. In addition to fast paced choreography, we explore the tools dancers use to give the audience a glimpse of the inner workings of modern dance. This is the first family show Micha has created. Inspired by her mentor Tandy Beal (in whose company she has performed), Micha wants to create something that will bring viewers a deeper understanding of how dancers and choreographers create, and to inspire others to become movement inventors. 

Micha toured internationally with the Garth Fagan Dance Company for 13 years. A soloist with the Company and in a PBS special “Griot in New York”, she was also a founding teacher of the Garth Fagan School. She has taught dance for daily company classes and as a lecturer at SUNY Brockport, UC Santa Cruz, Santa Clara University and Cabrillo College. Her dancing has been featured in Time, Essence and Dance Magazines.  

“I truly believe that dance is for every body, at any age, in any place. It goes beyond all of the “isms” that humans use to separate and divide themselves. Dance is a language that people can feel in the innermost center of their beings, and it can express untold emotions, intellectual ideas, and revelations of the spirit in us all.”
