Founded with the idea that the medium of dance can bridge a community together, Sacramento Contemporary Dance Theatre embarked on its inaugural journey in 2015 under the direction of Jacob Gutierrez Montoya. SCDT's debut concert, RESILIENCE, provided $12K in funds for the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center in its continuing fight to find therapies and ultimately a cure for this horrid disease. Through the dedication of a network of artists, directors, and project volunteers SCDT continues to raise funds in support of local nonprofits and community outreach programs.
“We love Sacramento and want to support local entities within our community by creating relevant work that will educate and open the eyes of new audiences to the power of dance when it is used collaboratively to make a change." ~Artistic Director, Jacob Gutierrez Montoya
