it's not dance. 

it's not improv. 

it's not theatre. 


To be honest, there isn't really a name for what The Ladies do.​

Fusing dance, improv comedy, and immersive theatre, The Ladies invite audiences to explore, engage, and participate.

It's not a show. It's an experience.​


The alter-egos of dance artists Leanne Schmidt and Marlene Strang, The Ladies fuse dance, improv comedy, and immersive theatre to create an entirely new kind of performance.

"an unclassifiable yet compelling mixture of dance, improv comedy, installation art, and immersive theater."

Phoenix New Times


"The Ladies hold up a mirror to the daily embarrassments of being a person with a body and responsibilities....

I feel seen by this show"
