Amelia Heintzelman is a dance performer, choreographer, and somatic educator.


My work has been presented by Center for Performance Research, Lubov Gallery, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Pageant, and Snug Harbor. I have been an artist in residence at Atlantic Center for the Arts, Chashama ChaNorth, Chez Bushwick, and University Settlement. I have worked as a collaborating performer for Phoebe Berglund, Juli Brandano, Jesi Cook, Ayano Elson, and Alexa West. I am currently participating in Deborah Hay's Trio Commissioning Project. 

I am on teaching faculty at Movement Research and Pageant, and have taught masterclasses at Mt Holyoke College, Indiana University, Ball State University, and University of Cincinnati. I rarely/sometimes teaches Comedy Pilates.

My choreography elicits dense realities that are abstract and animated. I draw from traditions of technicity (post modern dance), found actions and behaviors (the quotidian, stillness), and procedures for expression (improvisation), to create motions for relation (a dance). My current inspirations include shape dysmorphia, sitting on the verge of anticipation, and tension without drama.
