Sherah Shipman and Joy-Marie Thompson

Joy-Marie Thompson and Sherah Shipman are choreographers and directors that work primarily with dance on camera. With Shipman born and raised in Houston, TX and Thompson reigning from Pittsburgh, PA- the duo started choreographing with each other during their training at The Conservatory of Dance at SUNY Purchase where they graduated in Spring 2018. Their dance short film "TONGUE TIED SHREWS" has toured in 5 film festivals in: Brazil, New York, Illinois and Mexico. "TONGUE TIED SHREWS" was also featured in the Dance Film Association's "#mydancefilm" screening at Lincoln Center. The duo is currently working on a new piece and accompanying film, "LINKt" which will (hopefully) premiere in Summer 2020.
