A Mid-Winter Break’s Dream
ABOUT OUR TEACHING ARTISTS:
MINDY TORO grew up in Brooklyn, working, choreographing, and dancing at Spoke The Hub, which greatly influenced her love of quirky and athletic performance art and dance. In 2015, she graduated with a BA in dance from Connecticut College, where she had the pleasure of performing the works of David Dorfman, Lisa Race, Faye Driscoll, Wendell Cooper, Ori Flomin, Heidi Henderson, among others. Mindy has shown her choreography at the Socrates Sculpture Park, LAVA, La Mama, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Danspace at St. Mark’s Church, and at various street festivals, parks, and gardens around the city. She most recently co-produced, with Mauri Connors, Park Piece; a two hour site-specific series of works throughout Prospect Park. She is also getting back into capoeira, which she is very excited about!
