Allegory Dance Theatre is a contemporary ballet company located in the South Jersey/ Philadelphia metro area. Through dance and theatre they aim to produce high quality work that tells a story. These stories can be as complex as life, as reminiscent as a place in time, as transcendent as a smell or word, and as limitless as the human imagination. Allegory was created by Jennifer Gordon with the intention to make dance performances more accessible and meaningful to audiences. The company’s choreography draws upon Mrs. Gordon’s own experiences and from many literary works. From childhood summers, shipping off to war, brain surgery induced dreams, the Andrews Sisters, classical masterpieces, Metallica, and more, Allegory Dance Theatre has something for everyone. As the company continues to write their story, they plan to incorporate audience immersing technology into their performances, create educational programs for local schools and communities, and collaborate with local artists and musicians to build a strong arts community in Southern New Jersey.
