Celine Bassman is a dancer, writer, choreographer, and filmmaker based in New York. A classically trained ballet dancer, Celine has attended programs at Dutch National Ballet School, Russian Masters Ballet, and Kansas City Ballet School. She is currently a sophomore at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University, where she is studying the intersections between feminism, movement, and storytelling. Celine finds inspiration for her choreography and writing from the rejection of colonial and patriarchal ways of knowing, and uses performance as a mode of exploring spaces that exist beyond the boundaries of traditional epistemology.
