Darcy Naganuma is the Artistic Director/ Founder of Naganuma Dance. Born and raised in Lihue, Hawaii, she has traveled across the U.S. and around the world as a choreographer, performer, and educator. Recent projects have taken her to Morocco, Argentina, Turkey, and Puerto Rico, and her NYC-based ensemble has created a buzz at such venues as Joyce SoHo, Dance New Amsterdam, 92Y, Ailey, 92Y Tribeca, and City Center since 2006. In August 2010, the company shared a split-bill SUMMERSTAGE evening with the Taylor II company. Dedicated to cross-cultural, interdisciplinary exchange and the synthesis of ideas, contexts, and idioms, Darcy has collaborated with poets, filmmakers, sculptors, painters, cartoonists, visual composers, and musicians.

Darcy has taught at many of the major institutions in New York City, including Dance New Amsterdam, Broadway Dance Center, Peridance, and the school of the Westchester Ballet Company. She holds a B.F.A. and Dance Education certification from the University of Utah, where she was a Presidential Scholar and recipient of the Interdisciplinary Arts Scholarship. She has appeared in commercials and dance specials on both the MTV and VH1 networks, and was invited to perform at the UN Headquarters in May 2007. Critics have described her work as “physical and explosive”, “powerful,” “riveting,” “lush and vibrant,” and “utterly absorbing.” She thanks the friends, family, students, and artistic collaborators who have painted her journey with love and meaning.
