Andrea Blacklow

Andrea Blacklow’s early training in the arts began in the summer youth dance program at SUNY Brockport Dance Department, and at the Student Preparatory Program at Eastman School of Music for harp and percussion. She attended Interlochen Arts Summer Camp and Interlochen Arts Academy in Northern Michigan. She then went on to Bard College, NYC, studying with Albert Reid, Aileen Pasloff, Lenore Latimer and Jean Churchill, and graduated in 1992. While dancing and choreographing at Bard College, she was a teacher for the Bard’s Youth Theatre/Dance Programs, instructing young artists through creative movement, dance technique, and composition. Andrea participated in the theatre department as the Assistant TD and wrote her senior thesis in Anthropology on Arts Education. She was a dancer for nine years with the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company, resident company of the Egg in Albany, New York. As a member of ESDC, Andrea was one of the Arts-In-Education performers for the company’s outreach workshops in New York State’s Capital Region. Her 25+ years as a professional dancer and teacher has brought her to Seattle, Albany, and the Berkshires.
 
Currently she is working on creative works for her newly established performing company, Moving Arts Exchange, and is leading a new wave of seasoned dancers to the stage.
