Danny Grossman grew up in a strongly politicized household in California - he walked his first picket line when he was 10, and as a student took part in the historic Berkeley demonstrations of the 1960s. His upbringing provided a background of committed social awareness, an influence that can be seen in the humanistic concerns that animate much of his work. As a creative artist, Grossman's greatest influence was Paul Taylor, one of the revolutionaries of recent modern dance. Grossman danced as a principal in Taylor 's company for more than a decade.
Danny Grossman has created a repertoire of more than 40 works for his Company which have been performed across Canada and internationally. Today, in addition to his role as Artistic Director, Grossman holds the position of Adjunct Professor, Department of Dance, York University .
Danny Grossman has received a number of awards for his work, including
NOW Magazine's Award for Toronto
's Best Local Choreographer - 2002, 1997
Grossman's roots as an individual and as a creative artist
are bedded deep in a single principle - a questioning of the
conventional, and an unwillingness to settle for the status
