Caitlin currently performs the role of Alice in Third Rail Project’s Bessie award winning immersive theater production Then She Fell, inspired by the classic tales of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. As an independent choreographer, Caitlin has presented dances at Dance Theater Workshop (now NYLA) and the Robin Howard Dance Theatre in London, UK. She has self-produced her work as a guerilla site-specific festival in collaboration with the City of Savannah, GA, and co-produced concert work at Chen Dance Center, City Center Studios, and Gibney Dance in NYC. Under the caitlin+dancers moniker, the company has been presented in numerous traditional and site-specific venues throughout NYC and the surrounding region, and has toured along the East Coast. The company was a finalist and crowd favorite at the annual ‘So You Think You Can Choreograph?’ performance, hosted by Nacre Dance in Schenectady, NY. In early 2016, caitlin+dancers was awarded its first grant by the Queens Council on the Arts for a collaborative project with acclaimed visual artist Amanda Millet-Sorsa (www.amandams.com). Their culminating work researching color and its historical and social significance will premiere in October 2016 at both indoor and outdoor venues. Caitlin teaches occasional master classes and set her first commissioned work in 2015 at the Savannah Arts Academy in Savannah, GA.
