Laura David

Teaching Fellow in Dance


Laura David is a Chicago-based maker, mover and educator who works to empower others through their work. Though most art is ultimately autobiographical, her work strives to center the voices and choices of her creative collaborators.

In 2018, David graduated with the Dance Prize from Kenyon College where they had the opportunity to study various facets of dance academia under Julie Brodie, Balinda Craig-Quijada and Kora Radella.

Since getting her B.A. in dance, Laura has worked as a dance instructor, therapeutic assistant, paraprofessional and middle school teacher. In 2020, they began a process-oriented project-based collaborative dance company: dollop dance theater. dollop is an interdisciplinary dance company creating approachable works using a light-hearted lens of humor and humility. Since its creation, they have released three full-length dance films and performed in Chicago, Philadelphia and Brooklyn.
