Our History

Since 2006, SIDEWAYS, based in Atlanta, has been inspiring audiences to question their perspectives. SIDEWAYS repertory presents dance focused on real human emotion and our relationship with others. Concerts flow from one piece to the next without a blackout, taking the audience on an emotional journey.

Our Performances

SIDEWAYS boldly and maturely has addressed themes of drug abuse, physical and sexual violence, love, death, women's rights, inequality, and family. SIDEWAYS presents two full-lengths concerts each season in the Atlanta Area, as well as guest performances across the southeast.


SIDEWAYS believes that through dance, we are able to express emotions not easily expressed by words. For this reason, SIDEWAYS partners with local Atlanta area schools and organizations to present "Everyone is an Artist" to teach young people how to communicate through dance.
