Juilliard 2000 graduate, Darrell Grand Moultrie is fast
as one of America's most sought after choreographers and
master teachers. The New York Times writes, “Moultrie moves
dancers around the stage with remarkable authority...is
obviously someone to watch.” Not one to be pigeonholed into
any particular genre, Moultrie has carved out an impressive
career that seamlessly weaves his distinctive and highly praised
ballet and modern dance choreography through very diverse
genres. Most recently Grammy Award winning artist Beyonce
selected Darrell as one of her choreographers for her current
Mrs. Carter World Tour 2013.
A recipient of a Princess Grace Choreography Fellowship Award, Darrell has created and staged his work for The Juilliard School ,Colorado Ballet Cincinnati Ballet , BalletMet Columbus, Ailey2, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Cleo Parker Dance Ensemble, Rasta Thomas's Bad Boys of Dance, Milwaukee Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Sacramento Ballet, The August Wilson Center Dance Ensemble, Tulsa Ballet, Point Park University, and CalArts. This Spring, Smuin Ballet will add Darrell's work "Jazzin" to their repertoire, and Richmond Ballet will premiere a new work.
An in-demand master teacher, Darrell has coached many young dancers who have gone on to dance in Broadway musicals, major contemporary and ballet companies, and perform with top recording artists like Beyonce and Usher. Darrell has taught at many institutions across the United States including the Juilliard School, the Ailey School, Dance Theatre of Harlem, and Perry Mansfield, and served as the Director of Musical Theatre at the Harbor Conservatory of the Performing Arts.
As a performer, Darrell was part of the original cast of the hit musical Billy Elliot on Broadway. He has also been seen in “West Side Story” in Milan, Italy, at the world famous La Scala Opera House, and was apart of the original workshops of the Public Theatre’s “Radiant Baby” directed by George C. Wolfe, “Sweet Charity,” and “The Color Purple.” He was seen on Broadway in the smash hits “Hairspray The Musical” with Harvey Fierstein, and “AIDA” where he understudied the role of Mereb, performing opposite Toni Braxton.
Darrell is a proud New Yorker, born and raised in Harlem. Today, he is one of the few choreographers working in the ballet, modern, and commercial dance genres. His heritage and world view brings a particularly unique perspective to his work within contemporary and classical dance.
