© 2017 by Jennie Pitts Knipe.

Jennie's choreography has been presented by Downtown Dance Collective, Trails & Vistas, University of Nevada, Reno, Iowa State University, University of Colorado, Reno’s Artown, Dance/Theatre Shannon, Wing & A Prayer Modern Dance Company, Nevada Shakespeare Company, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, and The Dance Cartel.  Her creative work received support from the Nevada Arts Council & Sierra Arts Foundation. 

 

Stylistically, her work tends to be bright, quirky, and lighthearted with an emphasis on theatricality, costuming, and musical diversity.  Beneath the lighter surface of her choreography, there is often a layer of social commentary, along with an emphasis on the process of composition and community building for the dancers involved.

She is passionate about community projects and especially loves to work with multi-generational casts, and non-traditional spaces.
