Helanius J. Wilkins

Helanius J. Wilkins is a Colorado-based choreographer, performance artist, and scholar who draws inspiration from his upbringing in Louisiana, one shaped by resilience, and his identity as a queer Black American to create original works that allow for moments of recognition and transformation. He uses dance and performance as vehicles to shed light on untold stories, to share personal truths, and to show how our embodied narratives can bring us closer together. Recipient of multiple awards, his works have been supported by NEFA (National Dance Project), National Performance Network, and NEA. He is Associate Chair and an Assistant Professor of Dance at CU Boulder. He was most recently appointed by Governor Jared Polis to the Colorado Council on Creative Industries.
