Daniel Wilkins graduated from the School of American Ballet, and went on to dance professionally with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Donald Byrd/The Group, Complexions, and the Suzanne Farrell Ballet.  Daniel formed DASSdance in 1996, with the intention to push the athletic and architectural limits of dance. His All-Terrain and multi-media choreographic endeavors have been commissioned nationally and internationally, including for the Chrysler Salon, Spectrum Dance Theater, Cornish College of the Arts, and a partnership with Flux Laboratory in Switzerland. DASSdance has its New York home base at Diane von Furstenberg (DVF) – The Theater, which has presented six full evening works by DASS with costumes designed by DVF. Additionally in New York, DASS has been presented by DanceNow, the d.u.m.b.o. Dance Festival, the JoyceSoho and the Baryshnikov Arts Center. In Seattle, DASS has been featured at such Festivals as Bumbershoot, Siteworks and 12 Min. Max and presented seasons at the Bagley Wright Theater, Velocity and Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center where DASS was recently named Artistic Partner. DASSdance has been featured in Fashion Wire Daily, Flaunt, Paper Magazine, Art News, W Magazine, Spin Earth, New York Magazine, The Seattle Times, The Daily and the New York Times radio WQXR.
