On this episode of DLEW, I talk with Anthony Alterio, choreographer, performer, and faculty in the Theatre & Dance Department at the University Kentucky.
One of my favorite things is getting to pick an artist’s brain about the work they create. And I get ESPECIALLY excited when we even get to dive into a specific theme that runs deep through their work. Join us on this episode of DLEW to hear about how Anthony is tackling queer dance, opportunity, and even a queer dance intensive.
Anthony Alterio is a choreographer, performer, and an emerging dance educator. Currently on faculty in the Theatre & Dance Department at the University of Kentucky, he explores representations of effeminate gay men in pop culture as part of a larger interest in how dancers present themselves. Anthony is a native of Pittsburgh, and he began his professional dance training at The University of Colorado-Boulder, where he received a BA double-majoring in Dance and Psychology and went on to attain an MFA in Dance from the University of Michigan. Upon graduation, he won the Maggie Allesee Choreography award and since has been showing work across the US. He also has been a guest artist/teacher at numerous festivals, workshops, and colleges. Anthony pushes extremes on stage as an artist, and brings that energy to his teaching hoping to create a sense of excitement and enjoyment for all who embody and view dance. http://anthonyalterio.com/
