Inlet Dance Theatre is one of the region’s most exciting professional contemporary dance companies. Founded in 2001 by Founder and Executive/Artistic Director Bill Wade, Inlet embodies his longstanding belief that dance viewing, training, and performing experiences may serve as tools to bring about personal growth and development. Inlet’s collaborative artistic staff build the company’s solid reputation for uplifting individuals and engaging new audiences via performances and education programming. 

Inlet is returning to Cain Park for their 21st summer. At the Kids Matinee, the audience will get an inside scoop into Inlet's specific art-making process and participate in creating! Audience members will witness a visual breakdown of Inlet's employed techniques AND a sneak peek showing of one of the new works that will premiere at the full concert on Saturday, July 30th. 

During Inlet’s 20-year history, we have transformed from a small dance company with local impact into a celebrated organization that impacts people on an international level.  Our core strengths reside equally in performance and education.  Whether we’re performing at local venues or conducting regional residencies or international exchanges, Inlet continues to inspire, educate, and innovate – all with the vision that dance can further people.

For two decades, Inlet Dance Theatre has touched and inspired people of all ages and backgrounds through its numerous education programs and its local, national and international performances. Throughout this growth, Inlet has yet to have a home to call its own. Today, Inlet is creating its own permanent studio, classroom, offices, and performance space in Cleveland’s new Pivot Center in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood.
