Jamel Gaines’ Creative Outlet Dance Theatre of Brooklyn is a world-renowned dance company dedicated to enriching our communities through artistic excellence. Our company has been lauded internationally and nationally for the "richness of dance tone" and "contagious vitality" of its productions.


Creative Outlet’s dance-theatre has been featured on international stages in a wide variety of countries such as Italy, England, Mexico, Spain, and Jamaica. Our work has seen prestigious stages such as the Lincoln Center, The Apollo Theatre, the Brooklyn academy of Music, the Paramount Theatre, and Central Park’s SummerStage.


Artists from our company and school have gone on to work with Broadway productions such as Fela!, The Lion King, and Memphis and collaborated with celebrities such as Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, and Michael Jackson.


Our Arts in Education Program (AIE) was developed as a result of CO’s excellent reputation for educating and empowering minds in the community.  The Chancellor’s office of the New York Board of Education contracted Creative Outlet to provide arts services – dance, drama, voice and visual arts – to approximately 15,000 students in more than 25 New York City public schools. This program employs over 30 professional artists annually.
