Phoebe Ballard

Phoebe Ballard (she/her) is a Brooklyn-based mover, teacher, and writer often seen on NJTransit hustling between artistic engagements in NYC and NJ (usually delayed, coffee always in hand). She teaches for Dancewave and writes for herself; she finds grounding in the practice of improvisation. At the center of her making and teaching practice is a deep-seated desire to be together, to make things messy, to not take ourselves too seriously. Phoebe graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2018 with an inspiringly unique cohort, a strong belief in the power of movement, and her BFA in dance.
