Breeanne Camille Saxton
After receiving her BFA in modern dance from the University of Utah in 2015, Breeanne has had the pleasure to work and collaborate with a variety of artists and individuals on a free lance basis. She was honored to be a guest dancer with Ririe Woodbury Dance Company and perform the works of Doug Varone, Daniel Charon, and Adam Barruch in addition to working with Alberto Del Saz as an understudy for Alwin Nikolai repertoire. She enjoyed her role as a Grissette and the dance captain for the Utah Opera's production of the Merry Widow, shortly followed by another performance with the Utah Opera as a dancer in AIDA. In 2016 Breeanne was accepted into Springboard Danse Montreal where she worked intimately with Daniél Desnoyers, Jasmine Ellis, and Yael Cibulski. Other artists she has worked with include LajaMartin, Brianna Lopez, Eliza Tappan, Nichele Van Portfleet, Molly Heller, Eric Handman, Shaun Boyle, Scott Wells, Yanis Adoniou, and Scotty Hardwig.
She has spent a great deal of time cultivating her own personal movement practice through various workshops and personal retreats to enrich and inform her choreographic work, the classes she teaches, and the way she exists (survives) in the world. She has taught classes to children and fellow free lance dance artists and through her OCT series continues to deepen her teaching practice while creating a uniquely independent space for artists to practice and research.
After working closely with Molly Heller on various projects, Breeanne found her full performative body and voice more accessible and satisfying. Using the lived experiences within the body and mind as the material to work with, Breeanne mines through sensations, memories, imagery, and groove to create dances and performances that give back to the performer and audience alike. She is currently crafting a large scale immersive dance-theater production to premier in 2018 that will be highly interdisciplinary collaborating with story-tellers, musicians, visual and video artists, and performers that span many generations. She is thrilled to join Ririe Woodbury and Alberto Del Saz once more for the European tour of Nikolais repertoire in 2018.
She resides in her stunning hometown of Salt Lake City where she is producing her own choreography, teaching, and collaborating with artists of all mediums on a variety of projects that excite her. She has a miniature schnauzer named Quorra (arbiter of the grid) who makes the hum drum a little more fun.
