Amy Slocum, M.F.A.Dance
Amy Sullivan became enamored with movement at a young age, first with gymnastics and then with dance. Through her primary and teen years, Ms. Sullivan danced at a local dance studio where her passion for dance and teaching was nurtured and pursued. Her love of dance and teaching continued and led her to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science in Childhood and Special Education from Roberts Wesleyan College and a Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Dance and Choreography from SUNY Brockport. At SUNY Brockport, she had the opportunity to dance in faculty pieces, as well as produce her own choreographed works in adjudicated concerts. At present, Ms. Sullivan pursues teaching, performance, and choreography in the community through her company, Stilla Dance, at Roberts Wesleyan College, and as a member of One Dance Co. Ms. Sullivan’s choreographed works are largely collaborative, and she enjoys working with an array of local visual artists and musicians. One project Ms. Sullivan has recently been involved with includes annual participation in the MUCCC’s Dance Festival, where she has presented choreographed works and taught workshops. She also self produced a show last summer titled The Light We Hold and is hoping to submit it to The Fringe Festival in the Fall of 2018.
