Shelly Senter

Shelley Senter is an independent dance artist whose work has been presented throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Russia and Australia.

She is a repetiteur of the seminal choreography of Brown and Yvonne Rainer, and has been presented as a "Living Archive" of their work and others' in autobiographical performance-lectures in such venues as MoMA, the Tate Modern, Berliner Festival and at the US Embassy in Vienna, where she was honored by the Impulstanz International Dance Festival. A teacher of the Alexander Technique, her work is informed by her experience investigating the principles of this technique to the performing body and mind.
