Natalie Johnson Dance
Natalie Johnson Dance is joyfully dedicated to a generous and open relationship with its community, and an unyielding loyalty to the movement art form. We seek to bring meaningful work to a wide audience through performance, teaching, and service, expanding our connections to people with love and passion.
Our dance is idiosyncratic, drawing from the artists’ histories, curiosities, imperfections and prowess. With choreography as honest as a diary entry, the audience gets to glimpse the human soul speaking through movement.
Natalie Johnson began dancing at Mountain Valley Dance in Alamosa, CO. She continued and broadened her dance education at Peridance Capezio Center Certificate Program, the American Dance Festival, The Boston Conservatory, and Bowdoin College, where she earned her BA in English and Dance. Natalie received three distinct fellowships while at Bowdoin to fund her research in dance and choreography, and was honored with the Dance Group Award upon graduation. She has performed masterworks by William Forsythe, Trisha Brown, and Igal Perry, and premiered original repertories by current master choreographers Jesse Zaritt, Charlotte Griffin, Gwyneth Jones, Alberto del Saz, and Annette Herwander.
Natalie has shown work throughout NYC, Maine, and in North Carolina. Her repertory has been selected and invited to perform at the American Dance Festival, American College Dance Festival, MCGiordano Dance Arist Salon, Amalgamate Artist Series, HATCH Presenting Series for Emerging Choreographers, Franco-American/Bates (FAB) Dance Concert, River Arts gallery in ME, The Secret Theater, MaD Circle Dance, Green Space, Gibney Dance Center, Triskelion Arts, and most recently as a Guest Artist at Bowdoin College.
Currently, Natalie serves on the MCGiordano Artist Salon Committee, helping to curate and facilitate this season's showcasing of artists
