Holly LaRoche is a Canadian born, New York based contemporary dancer and choreographer. She received her BFA in dance summa cum laude from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. While there, she mastered various styles of contemporary and improv techniques, and counts floor work, athleticism, and acrobatics among her specialties (also drawn from her base as a Rhythmic Gymnastics National Champion.) Tisch also offered Holly an introduction into the film industry, where she now dances and choreographs for the screen, most recently for a segment on Comedy Central. Holly toured the United States with the Joffrey Concert Group, performing classical works by the likes of Balanchine and Ailey. Holly has also performed works by Crystal Pite in Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival, and Desmond Richardson of Complexions Contemporary Ballet at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. Her current interests are in melding her rhythmic gymnastics background with the contemporary work of today, whether on stage or on screen. Holly is also a writer for magazine Dance Informa, and uses her platform to highlight the amazing artists she meets and works with in her ever evolving career.
