  • PRACTICE : Dance
  • FROM : USA

After receiving her B.A. in Choreography/Performance at the University of Washington, Jeannine Charles moved to the Bay Area where she has been teaching, choreographing and dancing professionally for the past 20 years. Some of her career highlights include founding VogtART Dance Co. in 1995; serving as founding member/choreographer for sjDANCEco; dancing for Company Chaddick/SF; and teaching at San Jose City College, American Musical Theater, San Jose State University, and Dancing Sun Studio. Currently, Charles is focusing on her company ArtistEDGE, and composing original scores and choreography, as well as teaching her modern technique class at Zohar Dance Studio in Palo Alto.

ArtistEDGE was created out of a desire to collaborate with other artists, musicians, dancers and actors. Though it is primarily a modern dance company, our mission is to combine inspirations from different disciplines to find a new creative edge.
