SHELLEY SENTER has been involved with experimental and
post-modern dance for nearly twenty-five years,
touring throughout North and South America, Europe,
Asia, Australia and Russia as a performer,
choreographer and teacher. She has been critically
recognized for her distinct approach to movement, both
as an independent artist and as a
collaborator/performer with many distinguished artists
in the international dance and visual arts community.
Her practice is rooted in the investigation of
movement, the consciousness of kinesthetic experience,
and the participation of the self in its continuous
reorganization in time, space and imagination. The
foundation of her work lies in improvisation,
collaboration and experimentalism, and she is
interested in the coordination or layering of simple
and non-virtuous movement to create a virtuosic
complexity. For nearly two decades she has been
investigating the application of the principles of the
Alexander Technique to the performing body and mind.
Her work has been presented in Canada, Mexico,
Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Chile, France, Italy,
England, Sweden, Greece, New York, San Francisco, Los
Angeles, San Diego, Boulder, Portland, Seattle and
