Kate Ladenheim

Kate Ladenheim Artistic Director The People Movers Dance
Kate Ladenheim (BFA The Boston Conservatory) is a choreographer and arts producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Her choreography has been praised as “stunning… an interplay of oppositions… pure, unbounded physicality meeting intricate, balletic delicacy” (the Dance Enthusiast). She was recently named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2018.
Her work has been presented across the northeast, most notably at Symphony Space, The Boston University Dance Theater, The Invisible Dog, Gowanus Loft, National Sawdust, and HERE. Internationally, her work has been shown at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and will be presented at New Zealand’s Performance Arcade in 2018.
Kate’s work has been commissioned by the Juventas New Music Ensemble, the Juntos Collective and Rider University. Kate has been a Leimay Fellow at CAVE since 2014, and is the winner of the 2015 Rider University Emerging Choreographer Competition. The People Movers have been awarded residencies at White Wave Dance, University of Georgia, and the Pocantico Center.
Kate is the founder and Executive Producer of CRAWL, a nomadic, multidisciplinary arts presenting series. She also recently produced and co-choreographed Transmission, a distributed, augmented reality performance and podcast series that premiered at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In addition to her work in choreography and production, Kate previously performed in Third Rail Project’s production of The Grand Paradise, with Brendan Drake Choreography, and with Nel Breyer at the MIT Fast Festival. She also appreciates nerding out over digital marketing with Amy Jacobus Marketing, and her previous work as a tireless dance advocate for the DanceNYC Junior Committee.
