Peter Kyle is a dancer, choreographer, filmmaker and Artistic Director of Peter Kyle Dance. He has toured internationally as a soloist with Nikolais and Murray Louis Dance, and performed with the companies of Mark Morris, Erick Hawkins, Gina Gibney, Laura Glenn and the theater company P3/east. He has taught at Bard College, Marymount Manhattan College, Sarah Lawrence College, University of Washington and Cornish College of the Arts, among others. He has received choreographic commissions and residencies across the U.S., in Scotland, Norway, Germany, Cyprus, Mexico, China, and Ukraine. He is Associate Director at Bearnstow, an arts retreat in Maine, and serves on the Board of Directors at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY. He approaches teaching and learning as reflexive processes wherein each moment is an opportunity for being mindful or mindless, embodied or disembodied, creating a space where each person feels empowered to reach beyond assumptions and expectations.
