About

Courtney King and Chloë Zimberg attended the University of San Francisco and met through the Performing Arts and Social Justice program. King and Zimberg founded Chlo & Co Dance in 2015. They have had the pleasure of presenting work at The Contemporary Jewish Museum, The Tenderloin Museum, the Joe Goode Annex, the LEVYsalon, Little Boxes Theater, and SAFEhouse Art's. They have presented work in the National Queer Arts Festival, West Wave Dance Festival, and the sjDANCEco Festival. Chlo & Co Dance is a fiscally sponsored company of FACT/SF, a San Francisco-based contemporary dance company.

Chlo & Co Dance produces Drove, which takes place twice a year and brings together Bay Area artists for an evening of curated work. Since the first iteration in May 2016, Drove has supported over twenty five artists and has been hosted in four venues.

Mission

King and Zimberg founded Chlo & Co Dance in 2015 with the two main goals of making and performing contemporary-based dance work as well as creating and supporting artistic community. The company works to generate aesthetically dynamic choreography that is both physically rigorous and intricate. 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.

The company engages and supports the ever-growing community of emerging and early professional artists by producing a biannual event, Drove.

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.
