The mission of Trainor Dance is to use movement as a playground for ideas, and to bridge the gap between accessibility and intellectualism in dance. Trainor Dance addresses social and intellectual themes with curiosity, athleticism and humor.
Founded in 2008 with a focus on interdisciplinary work, Trainor's choreography has been performed on both sides of the Atlantic in conjunction with visual art, poetry, music and film. Recent highlights of Trainor Dance include appearing at Platform Northeast, a regional live art platform in Newcastle, England, and selection as guest choreographer for Nacre Dance in Albany, NY. The company has performed at Skidmore College for Saratoga Springs Summer Arts Fest, the Center for New Media (CT), BAAD (Bronx, NY), the Greenspace (Queens, NY) and at SUNY Purchase (Westchester, New York) for the Steffi Nossen Dance in Education Fund annual concert. Trainor's choreography has been performed by student dancers at Northumbria University (Newcastle, England), Providence College (RI), Murray State University (KY) and Kennesaw State University (GA). Trainor was a recent recipient of a generous grant from New York Foundation for the Arts.
