Heidi Latsky Dance: D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D

Guest are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to curtain for an on-stage experience. D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D celebrates the unexpected. An art exhibit where the art is live and the audience can experience dynamic dancing as the performers break out of their stillness, it is a magnificent opportunity to experience inclusion. At the intersection of art and fashion, Heidi Latsky Dance disrupts space, dismantles normal, and redefines beauty and virtuosity through innovative performance and discourse. HLD brings rigorous, passionate, and thought- provoking work to broad audiences.


Heidi Latsky

HEIDI LATSKY, originally from Montreal, first received recognition as a celebrated principal dancer for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company (1987-1993). Latsky’s experience there profoundly influenced her style and philosophy of dance as she went on to develop Goldhuber & Latsky (1993-2000) with partner Lawrence Goldhuber. This duet company received notable commissions from American Dance Festival, Whitney Museum of American Art and The Joyce Theatre.

Her career culminated in 2001 when she founded Heidi Latsky Dance (HLD). In 2009, Latsky was one of four choreographers chosen by Creative Capital Foundation to receive a three-year award to support her evening-length work, GIMP. Six years later, she was commissioned by Peak Performances in Montclair, NJ to create her first film Soliloquy as part of “Dance for Film on Location”, a series underwritten by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

A critically acclaimed, innovative, and influential leader in the physically integrated dance field, Latsky has toured internationally and her sought after keynote speeches have impacted venues such as Harvard University, Arts for All Abilities, Barnard College, Maxine Green Institute, Ramapo for Children, Chicago Humanities Festival, and APAP. She has presented at TEDxWOMEN, and a feature on GIMP (2008) was nominated for an Emmy. Other speaking engagements have included Clark University, SXSW EDU 2020, and The International Conference on Movement and Computing.

As an advocate for disability rights, Latsky serves on the Dance/NYC Disability Task Force, Dance/USA Deaf and Disability Affinity Group, NYC Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities / Project Access Working Group, and the Artist Advisory Board of Danspace Project. She is currently mentoring disabled artists Maria Terese Kittilsen and Ben Levine through programs in Norway (Diverse Nordic Voices Choreographic Initiative) and DC (Dance/USA Institute for Leadership Training) and has been commissioned by disabled dancer Lawrence Shapiro to create a solo underwritten by the Canada Council for the Arts. In 2019, Latsky created and implemented a year-long pilot program for people with spinal cord injuries, underwritten by the Craig H Neilsen Foundation. She has served as a consultant for NYU Tisch, American Musical and Dramatic Academy, amongst others.
