    Nick Daley



    Nick Daley (Westport, CT) began his dance training at the D’Valda and Sirico Dance and Music Centre in Fairfield, Connecticut. Through his high school career, he trained with American Ballet Theater, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, and Pilobolus. During his freshman year at Colorado College, he was selected to perform works by choreographer Nail Ibragimov of Russia’s Pantera Chamber Ballet. He continued his training at Wesleyan University, where he studied under Doug Varone and Dancers, Kelly Lynch of Kate Weare Company, and Dante Brown of Warehouse Dance, and graduated in 2017 with a BA in Dance.

    Since moving to New York, Nick has studied under the tutelage of Max Stone, whom he regularly assists both in and out of New York. His performances on the New York stage include the Ailey Citigroup Theater with Lane Gifford, the Jack Crystal Theater with Eury German, and the Bryant Park Contemporary Dance Festival with Ehrstrand Dance Collective. As a member of Ehrstrand Dance Collective, he has taught and performed in Taiwan, and presented original choreography as an artist-in-residence in Sweden.

    Class Description:

    Nick’s class begins with a thorough, codified warmup that addresses the entire body, inviting dancers to find flow, weight, and play between effort and ease. An avid student of anatomy, his focus on alignment and bodily clarity invites a continual return to our fundamental bases of organization and movement – the pelvis and the contraction. His approach encourages dancers to project energy through and beyond the limits of their kinesphere to hone the skill of finding width, fluidity, and unity in all the avenues of the body. In contrast with the precision of classical forms, Nick’s class also incorporates movement that pushes dancers to find grounded weight and send the feral body through space. It is his goal to invite dancers to move harmoniously through these two seemingly juxtaposed movement approaches, bleeding the edges between codified movement and raw physicality. Dancers will find the challenge of using this physical approach not only to move but to express, developing the focus and communication that brings life to dance.
