About Alight

Blending dance, physical theater, & spoken word, alight dance theater was founded by Angella Foster to speak truthfully about the habits of the human heart through movement, embracing the brokenness and celebrating the pursuit for wholeness in a fragmented world.

Conceiving of the body as the most articulate storyteller, alight uses full-bodied physicality as well as subtle gesture to give voice to the stories which are concealed, hidden, or neglected in our day-to-day lives.

Alight dance theater is committed to building a dynamic community of collaborative artists who work together to create visually striking, emotionally resonant performance events.

Through our blog, site-specific works, community workshops, open rehearsals & theatrical performances, alight dance theater invites you to be part of our creative community.

alight dance theater is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated in the state of Maryland.
