Mary (Immersive Experience Consultant) is a dance artist based in NYC. Originally from Wisconsin, she holds a BFA in dance from the University of Milwaukee-WI. She has been an avid member of the NYC Dance community for 18 years. Throughout her career, she has had the pleasure of working with many dance companies and choreographers. Mary currently works with Third Rail Projects and was proud to be a performer and rehearsal director for their Bessie award-winning show, Then She Fell (closed in 2020).

From time to time, Mary creates solo performance works and dance films. In past years Mary has had the pleasure of working with: Jody Oberfelder, Becky Radway, Megan Bascom, the Resonance Collective, Elia Mrak (Seattle), Regina Nejman, Kelly Anderson (Chicago), David Appel Dance, Rebollar Dance Theater (D.C.), Simone Ferro (Milwaukee), and others. In addition to performing, Mary has invested in deep practice and study of improvisation. Mary and Carmen connected through improvisation and developed the Movement Playdates (2014-2017): an improvisational practice focusing on the relationship between movers while exploring the use of space, time, and dynamics. She is thrilled to finally collaborate with Carmen after many years of friendship!
