Angie Conte

Angie Moon Conte is an artist living in Brooklyn, NY.  She earned a MFA in Dance, from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and her undergraduate degree from Roger Williams University.  Her company, Angie Moon Dance Theatre has been presented both Nationally and Internationally in venues ranging from local farmers markets, to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, to Danspace at St. Marks Church.  The work has been described as "quite beautifully enthralling, like a well-written tragic novel that refuses to be set aside.”

 

As a choreographer, she has had the honor of being mentored by Kelli Wicke Davis, Phyllis Lamhut, Janis Brenner, 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, and Tiffany Mills.  She, also, 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.

 

As a teacher for many years, her master classes and choreography have been celebrated and sought out over the East Coast. Angie has taught in a range of places, from pre professional ballet schools, to city outreach, to competition studios, to adult professionals, to universities. The approach is always the same, to feel the energy of the room, and find the best way to create a vibe that inspires hard work, keeps everyone having fun, while thinking of technique in a different light. She recently started judging for both Headliners and Inferno Dance where she can spread her love of art and unique teaching style to students across the country.

 

Angie is, also, a filmmaker. Her work has been screened overseas, along with the New York Indie Film Festival, Movies By Movers Film Festival, and the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.
