Ellice Patterson

Ellice Patterson is the founder and director of Abilities Dance, a Boston-based nonprofit that welcomes dancers of all mental and physical abilities. The concept started 7 years ago when she had a spinal operation that left her relearning how to dance. In the process, she attended Urbanity Summer Intensive and Bates Dance Festival. Outside of Abilities Dance's shows, her choreography has appeared in Bates Dance Festival, Third Life Choreographer Series, Green St. Studio's SEEDS showcase, Green St. Studio's Garage Festival, Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, and The Series: Vol IV at the Alvin Ailey Theatre. She has been in residency with OnStage Dance Company. She also earned her Bachelors of Arts in Biological Sciences from Wellesley College and her Masters of Science in Management Studies from Boston University Questrom School of Business. Her work in Abilities is modern focused with an adaptive twist so that dance is accessible to all.

(I am also open to touring and teaching. Fees are negotiable and heaviliy based on travel fare, accommodations, etc.)
