The Foundation

“Bless the continual stutter of the word being made into flesh.”
– Leonard Cohen

At the time of its creation in 1981, the Margie Gillis Dance Foundation was inspired by these words and strived to manifest in dance a vision of the human condition. Margie portrays our weaknesses and vulnerabilities. She celebrates our hopes and the power of creation and healing.
