Brigid Baker is choreographer, educator, director of 6th Street Dance Studio and brigid baker
wholeproject, her dance company. Baker’s work derives from her companion practice,
Lightbody, an innovation in breath, spinal wave, sound, and movement. Lightbody reveals
unconscious movement potentials through patterned neural tracings, from which movement
language emerges, with dedication to the subtle energy field of expression.
Baker builds multi-disciplinary productions and environments; the well-spring from which all
elements emerge is founded in dance. Exaggeration in proportion and scale in environmental
elements is used to create spatial “acoustics” which amplify meaning.
Baker's commissions include company residency at Miami Dade County Auditorium On.Stage
Black Box Theater, Malandain Ballet Biarritz FR, and Saison Temps D’Aimer Festival. Teaching
positions include Dance Space in NYC, national studios and dance festivals in Latin America
and Europe and composition at New World School of the Arts, FL. Baker has won 3 Knight Arts
Challenge grants, New Times #28 of 100 creatives, Dance Miami’s Choreographers’ Program
and 2 Atlantic Philanthropies Gifts.
