Allison Blakeney is a dancer, performance artist, and writer based out of New York City. She has trained, danced, performed, and taught for over 20 years in Colorado, Los Angeles, and now New York City. As a teacher she is interested in embodied movement that allows dancers to engage every part of their being in class and in performance. Her current work explores that which haunts her personally, socially, and politically. The performance of this is interdisciplinary; it utilizes dance, text, things, music, outbursts of noise, and anything else that helps her remember the erased histories and lives of queer people in order to imagine queer futures. Her most current movement experiment involves delving into this haunting through queerness, witchcraft, and the idea of becoming-wolf. She is also pursuing an MA in Dance and Queer Studies at New York University through the Gallatin School of Individualized Studies.
