Kate Ladenheim

Kate Ladenheim Artistic Director The People Movers Dance

Kate Ladenheim (BFA The Boston Conservatory) is a choreographer, arts producer, and designer 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). Her work has been presented at the REVERB Dance/APAP Festival, the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, The CURRENT SESSIONS, Center for Performance Research, DIXON Place, Triskelion Arts Center, Symphony Space, The Boston University Dance Theater, Peridance Capezio Center, The Invisible Dog, and HERE.

Kate has been a Leimay Fellow at CAVE since 2015, and is the winner of the 2015 Rider University Emerging Choreographer Competition. Her work has also been commissioned by the Juventas New Music Ensemble and Rider University. The People Movers have been awarded residencies at The Ballet and Dance Center in Syracuse, New York, The Field (New York, NY), and through the White Wave Rising Choreographer Residency Program. Most recently, Ladenheim was invited to a collaborative residency with Peter Van Zandt Lane at the Pocantico Center through Composers Now and supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. She continued her work with Lane this past January with a creative residency at University of Georgia, Athens.

Kate is also the founder and Executive Producer of CRAWL, a nomadic, multidisciplinary arts presenting series. Seeking to imagine an alternative, forward-thinking vision of arts presentation, CRAWL events inspire community between performers and audiences, and showcase the skill, creativity, and diversity of a new generation of artists in NYC.

In addition to her work in choreography and production, Kate previously performed in Third Rail Project’s production of The Grand Paradise. She also appreciates nerding out over digital marketing with Amy Jacobus and her previous work as a tireless dance advocate for the DanceNYC Junior Committee.
