Choreography / Dance and Performance Art / Conceptual Art by Holly Seeley.  Expanding the sensory experience in dance. Awakening a spirit of playful engagement and enjoyment of our physical world.


Classes, rehearsals, and performances take place in the studio and then on the seashore in Malibu. The Sand Dance Project goes beyond site-specificity. It is a texture-specific practice.

The waves are dancing 24 hours a day on a proscenium stage.  The beach is an expansive, and reactive dance floor with endless possibilities.

The natural light, fresh air, and pliable surface is a sensory experience unlike a studio or theater setting. This is a challenge to the rituals of dance practice location and a rejection of the boxy confines of traditional venues.

The sand offers a different tactile experience from a traditional dance floor surface (texture to sense, use, manipulate, and with which to experiment).

Sand becomes a design component in real time. Tracks of body movements are seen in the reactive, manipulable surface.
