Floor work With WolfBird Dance

Selina DiPronio and Raven Jones (Artistic Directors of WolfBird Dance) both graduated from the University of South Florida with Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Modern Dance Performance. Their collaboration began in 2014 in Tampa, Florida, where they presented their first evening-length work Your Backwash Is Better Than Nothing. Since then, they have produced four evening-length works, with a fifth work in process, on both the East and West coasts, as well as several independent short pieces. Their signature dance theatre style is known to be fiercely physical, viscerally emotional, and has been reviewed as “unself-conscious,” “human,” and “intelligent.” For more information about upcoming performances and to register for community classes, visit WolfBird Dance’s website at
