TITAS is the Texas International Theatrical Arts Society
Mission: As the arts are vital to any great culture, we aspire to be a catalyst for an inclusive and innovative city that is a global cultural destination.
Vision: We entertain, educate, and inspire by curating and commissioning extraordinary dance and performance art from around the world.
TITAS Presents began in 1982, as Texas International Theatrical Arts Society as the brainchild of Tom Adams and Gene Leggett to bring interesting and entertaining, global dance and music to Dallas. TITAS Presents has grown and evolved into the premiere presenter of dance in Texas and the Southwest United States, under the curation, collaboration, and commissioning of Charles Santos.
TITAS Presents works to provide the Dallas audience with a window to the world with an eclectic mix of dance programing and offers the best of the best in touring dance companies. Audience engagement, learning and cultural investments are at the center of TITAS Presents CROSSROADS programming. We make direct access to the artists available to the public through post-performance Q&A sessions, Lecture/Demonstrations, Master Classes, Student Matinees and outdoor Big Barre classes.
