Who we are
Nikolais / Louis is a name that is synonymous with the finest in modern dance, influencing every facet of the art.

The Nikolais/Louis Foundation for Dance actively promotes the performance of both Alwin Nikolais and Murray Louis’s choreographies by professional companies and dance students around the world.

The licensing of these works range from full productions to single masterworks. The Nikolais/Louis Foundation will work directly with potential licenses to set and stage the repertory custom to the performers executing the work.

The repertory is taught and coached by Alberto del Saz artistic director of the Foundation to provide authentic replication of the work as well as artistic excellence.
