Rotkin

Adjunct Faculty
School of the Arts
MFA, Bennington College
Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Joanna relocated to New York City to pursue her work as a choreographer, dancer, and performer. After receiving an MFA from Bennington College in 2002, Joanna returned to her hometown to continue her work as a performing artist and dance educator. She is the founder of TinHouse Experimental Dance Theatre, a dance company committed to creating experimental dance performance that uses the raw physicality of the human form to bring images, dreams, hallucinations, and fantasies into focus through powerful, bold, and electrifying movement. In 2003, Joanna founded the educationally based dance program, As the Crow Flies, in order to bring dance to a wider and more diverse community. Elders, youth, and developmentally disabled adults gather regularly to practice improvisational dance forms, challenging and nurturing each other to go beyond perceived notions with the hope of learning to appreciate diversity and difference in our community through the medium of dance. Joanna has taught at The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Bennington College, Prescott College, and the Shambhala Center in Boulder. Joanna currently teaches at Naropa University, The University of Colorado, and in the community while performing and choreographing regularly with her company.
