One Day Dance
is a multi-faceted, New York City based dance production company that operates in pursuit of three core objectives.
-To attract and entertain a worldwide audience through online dance films created in 24 hours as well as live performances.
-To educate, inspire and prepare future professional dancers to thrive as artists in the Information age.
-To provide high-quality dance films, photography, graphic design, advertisements and web design for professional dancers, dance companies, and dance related institutions.
These objectives are carried out within connected initiatives. Our dance company performs fresh choreography both online on film and in person on stage. Those same company members hold workshops and intensives within the NYC area. Guided by Artistic Director Joseph Heitman, One Day Dance also offers comprehensive photography, design, and film services to dancers, dance companies and other dance related institutions. Through these initiatives, One Day Dance aims to transform the landscape of the dance scene by making it more accessible to all. These ongoing projects as well as our collaborative project “The DanceLab” (Created in conjunction with Six Degrees Dance) allow us to connect with and form a community between a wide range of audiences
Who is Joseph Heitman?
Originally from Connecticut, Joseph Heitman is a graduate of the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts and the University of Hartford, Hartt Dance Division. Joseph graduated from the Hartt School Magna Cum Laude in 2017. Trained in Ballet, Limón, and various Hip Hop styles, Joseph pulls from a large movement vocabulary to create choreography. At the Hartt School Joseph had the opportunity to work with renowned choreographers such as Gregory Dolbashian, Norbert de la Cruz III, Doug Varone, and Stephen Pier. He has per-formed at prestigious theatres such as the Joyce, The Dixion Place, Actors Fund, Lincoln Jazz, Salvatore Capezio Theater and the Mohegan Sun Arena.
Joseph is a company member at Yu.S.Artistry, Hanna Q Dance Company,
Peter and Co. and Abarukas. Recently his movement was described as "Animalistic yet graceful" with the ability to highlight "intricate choreography with precision and abandon" (Cecly Placenti - The Dance Enthusiast). Joseph founded One Day Dance in January of 2018 in Hartford, CT. He started with one simple concept; to create dance films within a twenty-four hour span. In summer of 2018 Joseph re-located the company to NYC and expanded his vision for the company to include education programs, media services for dancers and a new film season featuring numerous choreographers. Since its creation, One Day Dance has been featured in film screenings such as The University of Saint Joseph’s 5x5 Dance Festival and the Dance Film Lab presented by the Dance Film Association. In addition the company’s stage repertory has been featured by The Bridge for Dance, The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, The Queens Informal, and Actors Hour.
