About Gabrielle

choreographer, dancer, teacher

I am an artist who lives in my work, striving to create things that are beautiful, important, and real.  I break constructs that have been placed on human bodies, the arts, and forms of dance by allowing for research and questioning. I view dance as a holistic experience and use the energy of the body as my creative tool.  My work comes from a fascination with people: their physicality and their tendencies. My pieces have been about connection, protection, purpose, expression, mystery, and infatuation.

Gabrielle holds a BFA in dance from Alonzo King's LINES Ballet at Dominican University, and an MFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.
