    The mission of the Pat Graney Company is to create and perform new dance/performance works and to conduct arts education programming. The Pat Graney Company commits itself to performing original dance works regionally, nationally, and internationally, as well as creating programs that work with students, incarcerated women/girls and other special populations. The Pat Graney Company, incorporated in 1990, has toured to most major American cities as well as internationally to Japan, England, Scotland, Germany, Singapore, Chile and Brazil. Ms. Graney has received Choreography Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Artist Trust, Washington State Arts Commission, NEA International Program, National Corporate Fund for Dance and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. In 2008, Ms. Graney received both a US Artist Award and the Alpert Award in the Arts/Dance. The Pat Graney Company began Keeping the Faith in 1992, which they offer to incarcerated women and girls nationwide. The program consists of performances, lecture-demonstrations and workshops for incarcerated women and girls. In 1995, the Company completed a six-month pilot project at Washington State Corrections Center for Women in Gig Harbor, culminating in performances for inmates and the general public. 2009 marks the 15th consecutive residency of Keeping the Faith in Washington State. In 2000, the Company developed a National Model of Keeping the Faith, where the KTF Artist Team works with artists in US cities to set up local programs based on Keeping the Faith. Ms. Graney has also lectured abroad about this unique program, drawing capacity audiences in Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan. Keeping the Faith had its first international presentation of the artist training in Dublin, Ireland in May of 2004. Ms. Graney is publishing a chap book of short stories about her fifteen years working with women in the US prison system.
