A little history...


Dances We Dance  was originally founded in New York in 1970 by legendary dancers/teachers/choreographers Betty Jones and Fritz Ludin. Betty & Fritz's mission and vision of forming a new generation of dancers resulted in over 50 years of dedicated teaching and choreographing all over the world. In 2019 Betty and Fritz retired and asked Ms. Todesco to take over the lead of this organization. 


Although this new chapter is not a direct extension of the founders' work, we are proud to pick up the reins and take the company into a new direction, with their blessed winds of wisdom at our backs. We hope to continue providing relevant creations and productions as well as education opportunities to the community. We pledge to always honor the remarkable legacy of our company’s namesake and gather strength and wisdom from their accomplishments.

Betty Jones and Fritz Ludin's ties to this company remain as honorary board members of Dance We Dance.
