Co-founders Isabel Umali and Dustin Carlson

DanceBands are groups wherein movers and sound makers are essential to each other. DanceBands perform experiences; they are artistic rituals that can transform space, expand time, and engender deep emotional response. 

DanceBand events are structured to offer interconnection of performance and audience, strangers and neighbors. DanceBands invite community engagement with an egalitarian mission to share art with sliding scale tickets, and without front rows or VIP sections.

The DanceBands series was created in 2020, and has been presented by KODA Lab and Home Audio
