elephant JANE dance

Heidi: " I make dances that are humanist and minimalist, visceral and thoughtful, emotional and highly structured. I am interested in these as contradictions, as opposing ideas that meet and negotiate. I work at the place where the neatness of abstract art meets the messiness of life. These dances are meant to be seen close, the performers touch, sweat, see into each other's eyes. These dances are real, messy, single minded, fluid, quiet, virtuosic.

HEIDI HENDERSON is a five time recipient of the RISCA Choreography Fellowship. Heidi has danced in the companies of Bebe Miller, Nina Wiener, Peter Schmitz, Sondra Loring, and Paula Josa-Jones. She has taught nationally and internationally and is currently an Associate Professor at Connecticut College. The company, which has performed in London, NYC, and all over New England, is available for performances, residencies and master classes.
