Adrienne Clancy, Ph.D. , M.F.A. (Founding & Artistic Director) is a dance artist and proclaimed “wizard of invention” by the Washington Post. As a “tour de force of unpredictable partnering,” her work explores architecturally informed partnering developed among diverse artists. Simultaneously dynamic and emotionally perceptive, Clancy’s choreography exemplifies an environment of mutual respect and creates images that embrace diversity and foster community awareness.

Over the past twenty years, Dr. Clancy has choreographed and performed throughout the world. She was the youngest choreographer to present at the Suzanne Dellal International World Dance Competition in Tel Aviv, and the sole student choreographer to represent the United States in the International College Dance Festival in Kobe, Japan, which toured to Tokyo and other Japanese cities. Clancy has taught and performed at the Open Look Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia and toured her work alongside the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange (LLDX). As a member of LLDX, Clancy taught modern dance techniques for the Dance and Community Partnerships Workshop at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Her choreography has been performed internationally in Colombia, England, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Paraguay and Poland.
