Nimbus Dance is an award-winning contemporary dance company at the forefront of excellence in the arts, civic engagement, and equitable impact. Founded in 2005 by Artistic Director Samuel Pott and based in Jersey City, Nimbus performs on tour nationally and throughout the greater New Jersey/New York region, impacting 16,000 people annually. Community engagement initiatives serve over 7,000 children annually through in-school, movement-based programs. Nimbus presents and produces the annual Acadia Dance Festival at the Criterion Theater in Bar Harbor, Maine. In September 2020, Nimbus opened the Nimbus Arts Center, a 14,900 square foot center with theater, gallery, and studio spaces that is the largest dance-based arts center in the State of New Jersey. Aligning with Nimbus’ mission to wield the arts as a medium for broad impact to our diverse community, the new Center provides a home base for Nimbus Dance as it expands its national profile and impact.
Consisting of 6 dancers, Nimbus2 performs repertory for a wide range of audiences, expanding the reach of dance to populations across the tri-state area. Developing a new generation of Nimbus artists within Nimbus’ aesthetic, repertory and approach, Nimbus2 provides a rigorous and inspiring environment for dancers to grow their performing and teaching abilities. Through performance of their own repertory, performances with Nimbus Dance, and community engagement, Nimbus2 offers a professional opportunity for dancers to build their artistry and experience and participate in the Nimbus organization.
We aim to create an inclusive work environment and work to actively embrace a diversity of people, ideas, talents, and experiences. Dancers of all cultural and racial backgrounds are encouraged to audition.
