The main goal of the Warsaw Dance Theatre is to promote the art of dance as a form of expression and to build a space for dialog with the audience. The company aims to create contemporary performances of dance theatre, based upon an interdisciplinary attitudes to artistic output, which develops new and unique dance forms, and builds up contrast with classical ballet, as well as allows to cross the boundaries of classification, technique and style.
The Theatre of Aleksandra Dziurosz has a pluralistic form that combines dance, movement, theatre, music and visual arts through creating performances and performance activities that go beyond traditional theatre space – in the places where this kind of art is rare or absent.

While the director of the theatre guides the general shape of performances, the members of the company also make an artistic contribution. The Company is comprised of professional contemporary and classical ballet dancers. The Company is, however, open to inviting new and visiting artists (dancers, composers, musicians and actors) whenever possible. Currently, the company is based in the Mazovian Institute of Culture in Warsaw.
