Harley O’Neill is a producer of choreography and movement-based art who studies the ever-evolving dance realms of contemporary, jazz, and hip hop, and how they might fuse with urban flow styles both ancient and emerging. Some of her favorite collaborations focus on creative, informational work that speaks to intersectional environmentalism through film and video. She is a Broadway Dance Center Professional Semester Alumna, and has since had the privilege to work with choreographers such as Marc Kimelman, Meghan Sanett, and choreographer-director Mary John Frank. Her work now constantly aspires to make dance more accessible, informed, and meaningful to new and advanced movers alike; finding ways to bridge mindful, healing movement and storytelling has become her ultimate practice.
Why Arts in Medicine?
I believe in the normalization of self-care, and find the arts to be a profound tool for self-reflection, as well as a catalyst for resiliency and compassion.
