Kendra Mace

(C3)2 Teaching Artist

 

 

Kendra Mace is a New York-based, California-grown dancer, teaching artist, and emerging contemporary choreographer. Ms. Mace approaches performing, teaching, and creating with an unbridled curiosity that fuels her intensity and rigor.

 

Ms. Mace received a BA in Psychology and Dance from California State University, Fullerton, and a MFA in Dance from Sarah Lawrence College, where she trained extensively with postmodern pioneer Sara Rudner. Due to her no holds barred physicality, Ms. Mace has been cast in works by Maxine Sherman, Rashaun Mitchell, Jodi Melnick, Dianne McIntyre, Buglisi Dance Theatre at Lincoln Center, and a reconstruction of Martha Graham’s 1931 masterpiece Primitive Mysteries at The Joyce Theatre.

 

Ms. Mace’s choreography has been commissioned and performed nationally, including numerous works for California high school and collegiate dance teams performing for Universal Dance Association’s National Competitions broadcast on ESPN. She is the recipient of the Mark DeGarmo Dance Salon Series Choreography Award (2015) and premiered her work for the MoveUP! Dance Festival at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center in Manhattan. In August 2016, Ms. Mace presented a public dance installation in partnership with East End Arts in Riverhead, NY.
