Transpositions, Pt. 6: Elm City Dance Collective
Witness what happens when Yale Dance Lab in partnership with the Yale Schwarzman Center invites 16 choreographers to create digital dance poems, performed by dancers from across the Yale community. Knitting together local, national, and international communities of dance, Transpositions: Dance Poems for an Online World explores the continuous and interrupted transmission of embodied dance practices in digital life. Edited by Kyla Arsadjaja MFA '20 and with sound design by Evdoxia Ragkou MFA '23, the concept and direction of this episode is by Elm City Dance Collective.

In addition to her heart and soul work with ECDC, Kellie joyfully dances with David Dorfman Dance and has been traveling around the nation and beyond with her DDD family since 2017. Kellie’s choreography is currently supported through an artist fellowship from the CT Office of the Arts. Kellie will be choreographing in collaboration with Lindsey Bauer.
