The People Movers
The People Movers is a contemporary dance company that creates and performs original works by creative director Kate Ladenheim. Our work reveals the abstract and inherently performative qualities of our world through complex and highly athletic physical expressions. There is a constant search for the relevance in our form.

Ladenheim (BFA The Boston Conservatory) founded The People Movers in January 2012 as a platform to explore her choreographic goals and ideas. Ladenheim’s choreography has been praised as “stunning… an interplay of oppositions… pure, unbounded physicality meeting intricate, balletic delicacy” (the Dance Enthusiast). The People Movers been presented at the REVERB Dance/APAP Festival, the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, The CURRENT SESSIONS, Center for Performance Research, DIXON Place, Triskelion Arts Center, Symphony Space, The Boston University Dance Theater, and HERE Arts Center. Ladenheim is a 2013: Breaking Glass: Emerging Female Choreographer and a 2014-2015 Leimay Fellow. Ladenheim and her company have enjoyed residencies at The Ballet and Dance Center in Syracuse, New York, The Field (New York, NY), and through the White Wave Rising Choreographer Residency Program, and have been commissioned by the Juventas New Music Ensemble. Ladenheim is also the founder of CRAWL, a new program of The People Movers, which brings artists of different media together during neighborhood-based arts events in NYC (Launch: December 2014).
