Melinda Blomquist, MFA

Melinda Blomquist is a choreographer who strives to bring connections to others and draw the dancer and the audience into the experience that is created on stage. Drawing the attention of both the dancers and the audience to the reality that dance is more than work created for performance, it is an experience that is a means to understanding the world and to connecting to our lives through our enriched understanding that is a result of creative journey.

Melinda Blomquist is a teacher who endeavors to open a student’s mind to the creativity of dance as they begin to come into their own movement voice and develop an understanding of the creative journey. In my technique classes I place focus on helping students find expression in a phrase of movement as they explore their physical potential -- encouraging exploration and freedom within the form and structure of the phrase while also exploring dynamics, rhythms and forms.
