Beyond Measure Dance Theater

Founded in 2007, in St. Louis, Missouri, Beyond Measure Dance Theater (BMDT) has been labeled a “preeminent Afro-Fusion Dance Company!” Artistic fusion is the language of this company, as is expressed through its combinations of poetry, visual art, folk tales, and dance. Both the company and individual members continually receive accolades for the powerful choreography, technique, musicality, and overall artistry in the work.

Artistic Director and choreographer, Alicia “Sunshine” Gbaho, built this organization to illuminate the powerfully influential and iconic dances created by the various cultures of Africa. Both traditional and contemporary creative music are vital to Beyond Measure’s artistic message and community engagement mission. Since 2009, BMDT has been producing annual concerts, community involvement series, and international culture-showcasing opportunities. Expanding beyond their reputation as a dynamic performance company, BMDT also provides dance education opportunities for all ages and abilities.
