Purpose: We believe that dance can change the world.
Vision: To cultivate curiosity through dance.

"I have had the pleasure of dancing with members of Jodie Randolph Dance, as well as having a subset of the company perform in a recent local showcase I produced. Their dancing is impressive, and their presence within the dance community in Ann Arbor is solid. I appreciate their numerous outreach activities. There is a major challenge in this city with a lack of suitable, central performance and even dance studio locations, and JRD under the generous direction of Jodie Randolph, has met this challenge by intentionally seeking out ways of expanding their audiences and bringing their works to different venues."
