ANGIE MOON CONTE
Angie Moon Conte is a multi media artist in NYC. She earned a Masters Degree in Dance & New Media from NYU/ Tisch School of the Arts, and her BA in Dance & Visual Arts from Roger Williams University. In 2011 she planted the seed that would become her dance company, Angie Moon Dance Theatre in her home soil of Boston. Through her years with AMDT she has presented work both Nationally and Internationally in a variety of venues such as the Kennedy Center, Danspace, Dixon Place, GK Arts Center, University Settlement, among others. She has also shown work in unconventional spaces such as art galleries, abandoned pubs, and a variety of sight specific work. She was recently selected to be a Split Bill Series artist at Triskelion Arts Center for 2018.
As a choreographer she has had the honor of being mentored by Legends such as Kelli Wicke Davis, Phyllis Lamhut, and as part of the NADINE Project with Janet Mansfield Soares & Libby Nye. As a dancer she has worked with choreographers such as Vita Osojnik, Kelli Wicke Davis, Sean Curran, David Dorfman, Carl Flink, Kate Weare, Jenny Rocha, Janis Lancaster and Tiffany Mills. In 2016 she danced at New York City Center in the American premiere of Crystal Pite’s epic work “Polaris” as part of Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival. Angie has also been working in film. Her work has been screened overseas, along with the New York Indie Film Festival, Movies By Movers Film Festival, The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, and the Tisch Dance & New Media Festival.
Angie spends equal time working in the commercial dance world as an adjudicator for various dance competitions, and teaches all over the country. Her choreography is highly celebrated at both regional and National competitions, and is often being awarded for its creativity. As a maker and a teacher, her goal is to expose the dancers to a new way of working and understanding their instruments, while approaching each class specifically for the group in the room. She strives to create an environment of safety and respect so the dancers can experience breakthroughs.
When she isn’t exploring all things dance, she is exploring other areas of art: she practices metal-smithing, costume design, painting, photography, and making furniture. She even recently became a published illustrator.
