TADA is proud to house Noblemotion Dance Company,

hailed by Dance Magazine as one of Houston's "A-list" dance companies under the direction of

SHSU DancE Professor Andy Noble,  choreographer for the Emmy-Award TV Series American Crime 


NobleMotion Dance is one of Houston’s premier contemporary dance companies and has received critical acclaim for their “extraordinary athleticism” and “cutting edge” programming.  Located within TADA, NMD was a Resident Incubator at the Houston Arts Alliance and is currently on the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster.  The company’s season consists of three Houston productions a year and regular tours to New York City. NMD employs two choreographers, two light and technology artists, and ten dancers of varying styles from culturally diverse backgrounds. The company has a broad repertory and remains focused on creating new work that challenges the status quo. NMD brings a fresh perspective to the Houston arts community and its mission of integrating technology with dance is unique to this region. The company has received over 30 positive local and national reviews and was described as one of Houston’s “A-list” dance companies in Dance Magazine.

The work of NobleMotion Dance is relevant in that it establishes, cultivates, and promotes greater public appreciation of dance through the creation and performance of innovative dance works. The development of these dance works involves collaborative efforts of highly talented artists from a variety of disciplines. This process allows for a deeper level of engagement in the creative process and shared experience of problem solving. NobleMotion’s team of creators investigates current trends in technology and discovers ways to integrate the research into dance in a way that it connects both the art and the technology to the human condition. Through performances, master class series, pre and post-show talk backs, residencies, conferences, and summer intensives, NobleMotion Dance shares their research with communities locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

NobleMotion Dance strives to produce work that is em otionally daring and honest; inspires discourse and understanding amongst diverse communities; and integrates dance, theater, and technology in unique ways. Our goals are to create a premiere dance company, a well- managed business, and a clear legacy of talent, civic pride, and artistic accomplishment.
