It takes a lot of nerve to start a dance company in New York. There’s no money for young artists, and rehearsal space is expensive. But groups do emerge, full of energy and creativity. Such is Summation Dance, formed by Sumi Clements and Taryn Vander Hoop, graduates of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW

"Sumi Clements and Taryn Vander Hoop formed Summation Dance in 2010, partly to provide a home for female dancers. At the time, they were graduate students at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts; nearly all the men in their class had jobs lined up. Their company, 10 strong, including its founders, is something of a sisterhood where strength is not just taken seriously, it’s a given."

"A frenzied solo for Ms. Vander Hoop ends with her back to us as she stands on point. Her darting arms and legs expose her suffering"

... GIA KOURLAS, THE NEW YORK TIMES
