Liz Sexe is the choreographer/artistic director of Liz Sexe Dance Company established in 2014. She is described as a “clean and efficient mover,” and having “toughness under her grace.” In her processes, tasks inspire poetic movement, game theory finds logical, yet often unexpected phrasing, and athletic dancing is paired with deep intentionality. Her choreographic work has been featured at the World Dance Alliance Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Danceworks in Milwaukee, WI, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin in Spring Green, WI, and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where she was an artist in residence.
She performs both regionally and nationally with Li Chiao-Ping Dance Company, Marlene Skog and Dancers and other local choreographers. She received her M.F.A. in Performance and Choreography from Mills College in Oakland, CA. Currently, Sexe is a lecturer in UW-Madison’s Dance Department. When Sexe is not dancing, she is a Pilates instructor at Pilates Central right on the square in Madison, WI.
