Melanie Greene



I’m a movement-based artist taking on the world through a curious lens. I’m no stranger to swirling on the edge of impossible, swimming in the sea of the minority. A 2017 Bessie Award recipient for Outstanding Performance with The Skeleton Architecture, I’ve presented work throughout New York City and abroad. I’ve received generous support from the Bogliasco Fellowship, Gibney Dance, New York Live Arts, Actors Fund Summer Push Grant, and Dancing While Black Fellowship. I’m a proud alumna of EmergeNYC for activist performance, and have performed with/for sheros Sydnie L. Mosley, Paloma McGregor, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Coco Karol, and Dancenoise. When not dancing, I enjoy writing about dance. I contribute written works to The Dance Enthusiast, Dance Magazine, and my personal blog. Currently, I am a co-host of The Dance Union podcast, a Movement Research Artist in Residence, and Spring Brooklyn Studios for Dance Artist in Residence. Stay tuned.
