Dance and Gender
A workshop for dancers to explore the ways in which gender is embedded in their dancing and find new  freedom beyond the limits imposed by their gender identity and gender education.

Moving Gender, Gendering Movement
An exploration of the expression of gender in the body and its consistencies and conflicts with one’s own personal identity.

Kristin Horrigan has been exploring the embodiment of gender for much of the last 10 years. Horrigan has offered numerous courses and workshops in gender and embodiment for dancers and non-dancers at her home institution of Marlboro College, for other college students through ACDA conferences and other similar
intercollegiate gatherings, and for adult professional and amateur dancers through workshops around the US and in Europe. Horrigan holds an MFA in Choreography from The Ohio State University (2002). From 2006 to 2014, she directed the intergenerational dance company Dance Generators in Northampton, MA. She teaches contact improvisation workshops internationally on a regular basis.

This project is sponsored by the Humanities Project, a program of the University of Rochester Humanities Center, and the program of dance and movement. For more information, contact the Program of Dance and Movement at (585)-273-5150, or visit our website at
