Megan Curet is an Afro Latina Bronx native dancer and choreographer. Her works draw on Afro-Latin rhythm and movement to develop a new contemporary dance form through practice-led research that investigates how bodies move within systems and how systems affect the moving body. Curet’s practice also involves engaging with the social and political she does so through public movement workshops geared towards collaboration with professional and non-professional dancing bodies of all ages and backgrounds.
Curet's work has been performed and taught to sold out audiences, across the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America. Alongside her career as a dance performer, educator and choreographer Curet founded NYC-based contemporary dance company Curet Performance Project in 2012 and online dance publication TiLLT Magazine in 2017.
She received her Bachelors in Theater and Dance Performance from CUNY Baccalaureate, Masters in Dance Studies from Roehampton University in London and is currently a PhD candidate at The University of Plymouth in the U.K.
Curet is currently a lead dance teacher for Zeta Charter Schools, a founding member of COOP artist space Collect8 at The First Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn and a performer and creative for artist collective Dancing La Botanica at Pepatian South Bronx.
