Owen/Cox Dance Group
The Owen/Cox Dance Group is an ensemble of professional dancers and musicians dedicated to performing collaborative new works. The group's mission is to create new music and dance collaborations, to present high-quality contemporary dance performances with live music, and to engage as wide an audience as possible through affordable live performance, education and outreach programs.
With this mission in mind, founders Jennifer Owen and Brad Cox bring together some of Kansas City's most talented artists, representing a variety of genres, to perform contemporary dance with live music. With diverse backgrounds ranging from the Bolshoi Ballet and the Leningrad Chamber Orchestra, to Alvin Ailey and Dave Brubeck, these dancers and musicians form a highly skilled and multi-faceted corps.
The collaborative results speak for themselves: fresh and vibrant new works that are classical in form, but contemporary in expression.
