The mission of 10HL is to advance the understanding of the male role in dance through the creation, acquisition, and performance of exceptional work.
10 Hairy Legs (10HL) is an all-male repertory dance company performing existing and newly commissioned works. Since our founding in 2012 we have commissioned 12 works from choreographers Doug Varone, Doug Elkins, Tiffany Mills, Manuel Vignoulle, Julie Bour, Megan Williams, and founder Randy James.
