GHDT Relief Fund will be matched up to $10,000

During this time of closure due to the Covid-19 health crisis, we have all paused our normal lives. At GHDT, our dancers are now holding class remotely, our rehearsal space is empty and the theatre is dark. We will get through this together and we send our thoughts and prayers to those who are sick and directly impacted by the virus.

We have started a GIVING CAMPAIGN to support our GHDT Operating Expense and Dancer Relief Fund during this pause.

A super fan and supporter will generously match dollar for dollar any donations to GHDT up to $10,000 before May 11. The monies raised will help our organization continue on the mission of bringing great art to the communities we serve.

Please consider a donation, if you can, as funding is needed to help us push through.
You may donate on line at and click on the donate button OR our preferred method by mailing a check to: Relief Fund, GHDT, 329 Gradle Drive, Carmel, IN 46032. Amounts from $25 to $1,000 will go a long way especially with the generous matching donation. Your $25 donation will instantly turn into $50 and your $1,000 donation will turn into $2,000! Your employer matching donations are also welcome!

Thank you to our loyal fans and donors for your support!

“GHDT and AGHDT have been in our family for close to 20 years. We don’t have words to describe what Gregory, his mom, the professional dancers, the instructors, the volunteers and the performances have done for us, but we do know all of it has enhanced our lives enormously. To that end, we would like to help GHDT close the gap that is widening every day. We are respectfully asking you to donate during this period to see if we can all help.”

–Scott and Joanie Zigmond

“It is so crucial to support the arts at this unprecedented time. A body can fully function only if all the components are alive. While food is necessary to physically function, ART feeds the soul and the spirit and must go on.”

April 11th Audition Postponed

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation in our country, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre has made the decision to postpone our April 11th audition. Because the situation is always changing, we have not yet set a date for the audition. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our website and social media accordingly. If you wish to receive email updates or have any questions, please send an email to

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Our priority during this time is to ensure the safety and health of our dancers and staff, as well as all dancers who audition.

Letter to Our Patrons – COVID-19

Dear Patrons and Supporters of Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre,

As part of The Center for the Performing Arts resident company community, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre will follow all guidelines issued by The Center, local, state and federal governments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  All performances and other events on The Center’s campus have been suspended through May 11, 2020 which includes GHDT’s EXODUS, April 3-5.  We hope to reschedule this performance for this summer if feasible.

The health and safety of our dancers, staff and patrons are of utmost importance and we understand the magnitude of this situation.  We are saddened that the theatre has temporarily gone dark, but look forward to a heightened appreciation for the arts, and the part we play, when the lights come back on.

In times like these, many of us want to step up and make a difference. You can convert your EXODUS ticket purchase to a tax-deductible contribution to support Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre.  It is through your generosity that GHDT will weather this crisis and continue its powerful service to the community through the arts.

And if you find yourself in a position to make a charitable contribution beyond converting your ticket to a donation, please click here to make a one-time or recurring donation to support GHDT.

If you elect not to convert your EXODUS ticket purchase into a donation, your ticket order will be refunded. Refunds will be processed starting March 30. Due to the volume of refunds, delays are possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The Center’s Patron Services office at (317) 843-3800.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Exodus Suspended

A Message from GHDT Executive Artistic Director, Gregory Hancock:

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I share this news with the patrons of Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre (GHDT). Due to the ongoing global health crisis, the Center for the Performing Arts has suspended all events for the next 30 days. This means the company’s production of EXODUS, scheduled for April 3-5 at The Tarkington will not take place. We will work with the Center to reschedule the performance if at all possible, but due to the ever-evolving nature of the crisis, we do not have a new date at this time. This is a devastating loss to the company. Patrons who have purchased tickets will be contacted by the Center to offer refunds, but we sincerely hope the patrons of GHDT may consider donating the ticket price to GHDT to help the company through this crisis. Please see the below press release from The Center.

Center suspends all events for 30 days
CARMEL, IN – Following the coronavirus recommendations issued this week by Gov. Eric Holcomb and the Indiana State Department of Health, the Center for the Performing Arts is suspending all performances and other events on its campus through April 12.
The affected venues include the Palladium, the Tarkington and the Studio Theater. The cancellations include performances by the Carmel Symphony Orchestra, Central Indiana Dance Ensemble, Civic Theatre, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre and Indiana Wind Symphony, as well as education events, rental events and eight Center Presents performances:
• Peking Acrobats, March 15
• Kurt Elling Quintet, March 21
• Doolin’, March 27
• Treasure Island, March 28 (two shows)
• Piaf! The Show, March 28
• Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, March 29
• 800 lb. Gorilla, April 4
All ticketholders will be contacted and provided refunds or the option to donate the purchase amount to the presenting organization to help defray costs associated with the cancellations. The Center will work to reschedule the canceled events as feasible.
The move is prompted by state recommendations to cancel or postpone for the next 30 days any nonessential gatherings of 250 or more people, as well as smaller gatherings in venues where people cannot maintain a distance sufficient to avoid the potential spread of the virus that causes the COVID-19 illness.
The Center will continue to follow the guidance of public safety officials and will reassess the policy in April to determine if the suspension needs to be extended.
The Center’s offices will remain in operation during standard business hours. The Box Office and the Great American Songbook Exhibit Gallery at the Palladium will be closed to the public through April 12, but ticket sales for events not affected by the suspension will continue online at or by phone at (317) 843-3800.
Patrons with questions or concerns may contact the Patron Services department at (317) 843-3800 or


Back by popular demand, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, the resident, professional dance company at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana, will present EXODUS, this April 3-5, 2020.

Inspired by the Book of Exodus, but adapted to our modern world, EXODUS is a cautionary tale of hatred and ignorance presenting ten modern plagues. Set to a score of epic symphonic and choral music and enhanced with complex visual artistry, EXODUS will transport the audience into an emotional story of love and sacrifice. The talented cast will lead the audience through thematic stories of oppression, emigration and freedom, and will speak to human rights and equality that resonates globally even today.

Join us for the newest of the GHDT masterpieces!

We are thrilled to have former GHDT company dancer,
Taylar Green MacQueenette,
returning to reprise her role as The Chosen.
