Debra Floyd arrived in Washington, DC in the mid 1990’s. Her choreography has been presented at numerous venues to include Jack Guidone Theater, Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center, F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater, and Joe’s Movement Emporium. Trained in American Sign Language, Debra has often incorporated this communication form into her choreography. In 2000, she founded Floyd Project Dance Company[1], thereby continuing her mission to use dance as a vehicle for supporting women. The company of diverse women emerged onto the DC dance community, striving to build positive images, raise audience awareness of broad issues and empower people to uphold women and their aspirations.
