Katelyn Sanchez is an artist drawn to narrative and how it can contextualize and illustrate where we are in time and place. She explores this in dance-making, performing, reading, researching, and collaborating.
Currently, Sanchez is in rehearsals with alexx makes dances for the 2020 premiere of Nothing There There (Topography) at Stomping Ground L.A.
In the last year and a half, Sanchez has presented work at Highways Performance Space, performed in Gold Series No. 1 at ARC Pasadena, performed in L. A. Grand Ensemble’s opera, Dulcinea XL, choreographed two operas, and co-produced a show, To: person, place, or thing From: x, y, z, at the Garage Theatre in downtown Long Beach.
Foundationally, Sanchez’s movement vocabulary is informed by classical ballet with Kirsten Oakley Ragsdale and her additional training at Boston Ballet’s Summer Dance Program in 2011 and 2012. However, her movement has significantly evolved with the training of Rebecca Lemme, Laurel Jenkins, Gracie Whyte, Summer Brown, and Keith Johnson, as well as performing in works by Lorin Johnson, Sophie Monat, Rebecca Bryant, and Robert Moses.
In 2018, Sanchez graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a BFA in Dance and a BA in English Literature.
