September 9, 2015 § Leave a comment

NCDF Touring Artist Amy Beasley joins us today, to talk about her dance, “This Place is the Place.” Amy and some of her dancers will also participate in our “Get to Know the NC Dance Festival” event on September 26. Join us to see some of these ideas in action!

Amy Love Beasley is currently on the faculty of Wake Forest University as a Teaching Fellow in Dance. An independent performer, choreographer, and visual artist, she received a BA in Studio Art from the College of Charleston where she studied printmaking, painting, and photography. She received an MFA in Choreography from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where her visual background merged with her choreographic interests. Amy has been a guest artist and/or presented work at various colleges, art galleries, and festivals including Appalachian State University, State University of Florida at Jacksonville, the North Carolina Dance Festival, Greensboro Fringe Festival, Art-o-Matic in Washington, DC, and WAXworks in Brooklyn, NY. She recently presented work at the Center for Performance Research, also in Brooklyn, and in Seattle. She has had the good fortune of performing for many artists who inspire her, including Gerri Houlihan, Niki Juralawicz, Christina Tsoules Soriano, BJ Sullivan, Sean Sullivan, and Talani Torres. She is further influenced by the companies she has had the pleasure of dancing with including John Gamble Dance Theatre and Jan Van Dyke Dance Group in Greensboro, NC, The Naked Stark in Philadelphia, PA, G.Alex and the Movement in Boone, NC, and Madeleine Reber/Salty Lark Dance in Chicago, IL.
