Ohio grown and raised, Kelly began cultivating her passion for dance early in Middletown’s Academy of Dance Arts. She then went on to receive her B.F.A in Dance at The Ohio State University with a minor in Alternative therapies and while training, was fortunate to learn from many distinguished dancers and professors including Bebe Miller, Susan Van Pelt Petry, Allison Chase, Rami Be’er and Noa Zuk. Kelly has had the extreme privilege of training and performing in Israel for six months with the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Co., dancing and collaborating in a dance for film project set in the natural landscapes of Denmark; led by Ann Sofie Clemmensen, and leading workshops, both at home and abroad in Denmark and China. She currently resides in Columbus, Ohio and continues into her 3rd year collaborating and dancing with Columbus Moving Company (CMCo). Kelly can be found teaching and facilitating improvisation, modern and composition classes and creating dance locally at FEVERHEAD, or around the Columbus area. Her interests in holistic health and alternative medicine influence her dancing and teaching allowing her to focus on creating safe, mindful and wholesome experiences for movers and makers. Humans are her main passion- how they influence the dance, think about the dance, make the dance and are the dance.
Hana Newfeld is an emerging dance artist. She was born into a family of yogis that granted her the space to have an open mind and body. Through yoga and never being able to sit still, she found dance at the age of 14 and quickly became enamored with the endless possibilities of the body. Along with dancing, she dove deeper into yoga and has become a certified teacher. She is now completing her final year of her BFA in Dance from The Ohio State University where she has tested the connections between dance and mindfulness. She also discovered film to be the medium to display her process of weaving these movement forms. She will continue to search and explore these methods through creating art.
