Mission

Chlo & Co Dance was founded in 2015 by Courtney King and Chloë Zimberg. The company works to generate aesthetically dynamic choreography that is both physically rigorous and intricate. It regularly generates and performs new choreography. The impetus to create is spurred by recognizing, setting and breaking limitations. At the core of Chlo & Co Dance is active communication, which is practiced in both process and performance. 

Chlo & Co Dance engages and supports the ever-growing community of emerging and early professional artists by producing a biannual event, the Drove. Drove invites Bay Area artists to share the stage with Chlo & Co Dance, make a new work in response to a curated prompt, and present work in a fully produced show.

In pursuit of their mission, King and Zimberg believe that honesty and clear intention are integral to success and growth. Chlo & Co Dance strives to manifest these beliefs in each project they pursue. 

About

Courtney King and Chloë Zimberg (Chlo & Co Dance CV) met in 2012 and have been dancing and making work ever since. They started performing together in pieces by Scott Wells, Eli Nelson, detour dance, Fog Beast and Rachael Lincoln through the University of San Francisco Performing Art's & Social Justice Program. In 2014 they made their first dance film while living abroad in Paris and Bologna. Since then, they have continued to make dance films as well as live works performed in the Bay Area and along the West Coast at The Contemporary Jewish Museum, the LEVYDance Salon, SAFEhouse Art's and with Doré Dance Company. Chlo & Co Dance produces the Drove, which takes place twice a year and brings together Bay Area artists for an evening of curated work. Courtney and Chloë strive to create work that is aesthetically dynamic, physical, and that continues to respond to new questions and challenges.
