Exit Dance Theatre, a modern dance company based in Newburyport, Massachusetts, was founded in 1987 by Susan Atwood, Fontaine Dollas, Cheryl Fisher, Stephen Haley and Linda Lazzaro. Exit's style is deeply rooted in theater techniques, improvisation and collaboration. Founding members wanted the movement to open up beyond traditional styles in order to explore the limitless range of possibilities through the body not the head; through imagining not thinking.
Exit has has had the pleasure with performing to the live music of: Danny Harrington, Roger Ebacher, Ronnie Earl, The Gospel Unlimited Choir, E.J. Ouellette, Jason Novak and more. Exit performs on the North Shore and in Boston, and opened for Anna Smulowitz' “Terezin”, in Auschwitz, Poland. Exit is a member of the Boston Dance Alliance.
Exit is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization located at The Dance Place in Newburyport, MA! Your generous donations can now be tax deductible! Sponsors are needed in order to expand the company’s touring schedule. Learn more about how you can become a sponsor.
