Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre...
We're a post-modern, contemporary dance company, based in Davis California. While a
great deal of our work happens in our home theater, we're also at work in the community!
In addition to traditional concert work, we often make surprise appearances in public, and
create site specific work for community events.
...Made to Move
Come see why Sac Bee critic Jim Carnes wrote,
"Davis choreographer Pamela Trokanski is perhaps unique among local dance creators in
being able to marry autobiography, popular culture and universal concern into works of
surprising seriousness and humor."
Welcome to our 30th Season!
Our next premiere performance takes place November 9, (and continuing on November 14 &
15) as we open our 30th season with Learning to See, an exploration of the physical process
we take for granted and the personal implications that follow us throughout our lives.

The Dance Theater has just embarked on a major campaign to raise money to
fund their "footprint" in the Life in 11 Dimensions project. Help support and expand our
work in the community with a tax deductible contribution! Want to find out more about what
we already do? Just click on Outreach . Want to find out more about how we'll use this
money in the new building? Go to our blog and find out more about both this project and the
work we do! All donors to the 11D project will receive a thank you note with our tax id
number, two free tickets to our first concert in the new theater, and their name forever listed
in the central atrium of the new building!
Moving into the Future
Auditions take place on Saturday, August 30, from 1:30 -3:30.
All three companies audition at the same time so that director Pamela Trokanski can see
how all the dancers work together. The three companies auditioning are Pamela
Trokanski Dance Theatre, The PTDT Apprentice Company, and The Third Stage, a
multi-generational contemporary company with dancers ranging in age from 8 - 80+.
