The mission of Headwaters Dance Co. is to develop and showcase thought-provoking, contemporary, socially relevant dance and to increase audience appreciation for this kind of dance.
Based near the Continental Divide in Missoula, Montana, Headwaters Dance Co. is a professional, contemporary dance company that showcases smart, theatrically oriented, contemporary works, created by choreographers from all over the country.
Founded in 2004 by Artistic Director Amy Ragsdale, Headwaters grew out of The Montana Transport Dance Co. (Mo-Trans), which she co-founded under the auspices of the University of Montana. After 11 years with Mo-Trans Ms. Ragsdale decided to break away on her own. Headwaters Dance Co. replaces Mo-Trans as the only professional, contemporary dance repertory company in the state of Montana.
