The PGK Dance Project was FOUNDED by Peter G. Kalivas in 1994 in Munich, German while he was performing with both The Bavarian State Opera Ballet and The Iwanson Dance Company.  During that time the company performed throughout Europe.  The Company relocated back to New York City and between 1997 – 2002 produced home seasons in New York City, toured across the US and Abroad.
2002 Mr. Kalivas relocated himself and the company to San Diego where they continue to produce some of the most diverse professional dance, often with “live” music programming featuring a variety of choreographers works performed by 7 stellar dancers.  The company continues to perform across the US and Abroad today with upcoming engagements for 2018/2019 including Santa Barbara, Orlando, Eugene, Las Vegas and Brussels, Munich and London.
