...is to CREATE original, Broadway-style jazz dance musicals that engage, Entertain, and INSPIRE audiences.
COLLIDE is a Twin Cities based non-profit performing arts company dedicated creating original Broadway style jazz dance musicals.
After a career in New York and Los Angeles, founder and artistic director Regina Peluso created COLLIDE to bring the energy and tradition of jazz- dance musical theater to her hometown of Minneapolis.
Influenced by the work of renowned masters Bob Fosse (creator of “Chicago” and other classic jazz-dance works) and Jerome Robbins (creator of “West Side Story” and many more musical productions), COLLIDE’s work is rooted in this classically American and wholly accessible jazz-dance tradition.
