Lawson Percussive Dance Arts Company

Lawson Percussive Dance Arts Company was founded by Tasha Lawson in 2021.

The Calgary based company integrates rhythm tap, body percussion and somatic movement practices into a unique visual and rhythmic experience for the viewer. Repertoire includes an eclectic array of music selections including jazz, classical, contemporary and world music. Live musicians and guest artists join the company for variety projects, site specific works and commissions.

LPDAC was made possible in part through funding from Calgary Arts Development Authority, Artsvest and private sponsorship.

Lawson Percussive Dance Arts Company Premiere – May 21 & 22, 2022

@ Studio Bell, Home of the National Music Center 

“…One thing from the participant’s showcase that I will never forget was Tasha Lawson’s quartet Playing with Chance, a very special take on the famous Cole’s & Atkins softshoe-that if you ever get a chance to see–don’t miss it!! (it felt like Honi was in the room, if you ask me & I’m pretty sure that he approved). “
