    Carolyn Dorfman

    Modern

    Biography:

    Known as a creator of provocative dances that reflect her concerns about the human condition, Dorfman is interested in creating “worlds” into which the audience can enter. Her high energy and technically demanding repertory uses movement as metaphor to take audiences on what one reviewer described as “intellectual and emotional journeys.” Since founding her Company, she has created more than 60 works for her 10 member ensemble, which appears at major theaters, dance festivals, universities and schools regionally, nationally and internationally. An award winning choreographer, arts educator and leader, Dorfman has also been awarded the New Jersey State Council for the Arts’ Choreographer Fellowship six times (as recent as 2010); she has a BFA in Dance from the University of Michigan and an MFA from New York University Tisch School for the Arts. Dorfman is a guest teacher, choreographer and lecturer at pre- professional, university and professional training programs throughout New York, New Jersey and on tour nationally and internationally.
