THE BRUCE WOOD DANCE PROJECT (BWDP) marks return of nationally acclaimed choreographer and native Texan, Bruce Wood, to the Dallas/Fort Worth dance scene. A group of die-hard dance patrons invited Wood to lead a small troupe of seasoned professionals and proteges from the local region and to develop a first class contemporary company. Dedicated to cultivating new work to contribute to the dynamic cultural life of this region, BWDP embarks on Season 2 with momentum from a highly successful inaugural season. Wood has invited a successful Southern Methodist University alumn / choreographer / co-founder of Dark Circles Contemporary Dance in Korea, Joshua Peugh, to join him as Associate Choreographer.
