the ensemble Although Dance Masters through the centuries left us records of the dances from their times, very few people today have the knowledge and training to decipher these dance notations. Through years of researching original sources and deciphering multiple languages, Dance Through Time has created original musical perfomances that give audiences the unique opportunity to see the dances, the costumes and the traditions of western cultures from the past 500 years.

The Company performs year-round in concerts, special events, master classes, lecture-demonstrations and residencies. Dance Through Time has received international recognition for its loving attention to authenticity, stringent artistic standards, and critically-acclaimed performances. Arts in Education programs, video archives and modern notation preserves the Company's work for future generations. Dance Through Time's recent milestones include its 12th national tour and a recent performance in San Francisco's Gay Pride Parade.

As a noted dance historian with a contemporary vision, Ms. Téten used her research and personal collection of over 700 volumes of rare dance manuscripts, journals, books and film clips to create the Company's repertoire of five full act productions and over twenty-five one-act shows. She also built Dance through Time's 500-plus historical fashions from her private collection.

She has lectured at the invitation of: the Society of Dance History Scholars at Harvard University in Boston, Goucher College in Baltimore, University of California in Los Angeles, and the First International Movement Notation Conference in Tel Aviv, Israel.
