Danielle Georgiou Dance Group (DGDG)

DGDG: the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, was founded in 2011 by Danielle Georgiou, and is a dance theatre group that works within the ideas of contemporary dance and physical theatre. DGDG's work reflects Georgiou's interest in social and psychological issues, and in creating compelling images of a "new female." The works break with the tradition of contemporary dance and tend to be more conceptual or narrative-driven. Whether collaborating or defining her own work, Georgiou wants dancers that constantly strive to transform themselves, either in image or skill. Technique is your foundation—not your identity.

DGDG was recently named 2015's Best Dance Troupe by the Dallas Observer. The Show About Men (2015) was named Best New Play or Musical and cited for Outstanding Creative Contribution for Choreography by the Dallas Fort Worth Theater Critics Forum Awards. NICE (2014), which premiered at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre for the AT&T Performing Arts Center's Elevator Project, also won for Choreography. 

DGDG's 2014 season was listed as one of the top highlights of dance in Dallas in 2014 by The Dallas Morning News, TheaterJones, and Art&Seek, and in both 2014 and 2015 DGDG was nominated as Best Dance Company by D Magazine in their annual Best of Big D series. DGDG's 2012-2013 season was named as one of the Best Dance Performances of 2013 by the Dallas Morning News, and Georgiou was named Outstanding Female Director of 2012 by Critical Rant. Recently, Georgiou was named one of TheaterJones' Forward Thinkers for 2015. 

The dancers of DGDG are ever-changing and growing, as we have a rotating cast of performers for each work. We have a wonderful working relationship with numerous dance companies and independent dance and theatre artists in North Texas, as well as visual artists and musicians, including Paul Slavens, Jermy Johnson, Unconscious Collective, George Quartz, and Sarah Jaffe. 

Georgiou truly has a hand in every part of the dance community in North Texas. She is the Program Coordinator and Visiting Scholar in Dance at Eastfield College, the Director of University of Texas at Arlington’s Dance Ensemble, a guest choreographer for Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet, a performer with Contemporary Ballet Dallas and a local dance writer/critic who writes a monthly column, Sixth Position, for TheaterJones.
