Five years after living in Steamboat immersing herself, wholeheartedly, into the dance scene in the Valley, Founder and Artistic Director, Meg Southcott knew there was room for more.
Meg created works for Steamboat dance studios, art festivals, and nonprofits that entertained, wowed, excited and pushed boundaries artistically. However, Meg experienced limitations in who, what, and how she could explore artistically. It was time to do things on her own.
Forty106 Dance Project was formed in 2018.
Forty106 Dance Project was founded on the principles of dance education, unlimited artistic control of movement and story, and meeting you were you are on your dance journey.
With a small group of dancers willing to develop skills, explore movements styles, and collaborate and create, Forty106 Dance Project is Steamboat's first contemporary/modern dance company.
