Our Mission

Dawn Axam,Founder and Artistic Director

Dance is a life force. It has an amazing power to touch people and to heal them -- mind, body and soul. 

We welcome movers of all shapes, sizes, ages, abilities and even disabilities. We use dance to reach, educate, uplift, inspire and connect with diverse audiences.

Axam Dance Theatre Experience (Axam DTE) is a collaborative professional company based in Atlanta. The company's unique style fuses movement, music, sound, visual arts and storytelling into a seamless artistic expression. Unlike other companies, our dancers are also our choreographers. We encourage, explore and celebrate diverse creative voices.
