Boyish athleticism marks this all-male repertory dance company performing newly-commissioned and re-creations of modern works. Their variety, humor and superior skill punctuate an evening you won't forget.


Through education and performance, 10 Hairy Legs advances the understanding of the male role in modern dance through the creation, acquisition and performance of exceptional contemporary work. Widely acclaimed for its aggressive commissioning of new works and curation of master works, the troupe has commissioned 16 works since its founding in 2012. In December 2016, the troupe was the only American dance company to appear at the Cape Town (South Africa) International Dance Festival.

An important part of the troupe’s mission is to provide a range of programs that advance the understanding of dance as an art form to thousands of students and educators each year. Carlsen Center General Manager Emily Behrmann says, “This is the kind of innovative company we look for when presenting dance. Their variety, humor and superior skill promises an evening our audience won’t soon forget.”
