Millie Heckler leans into creative playgrounds of re-emerging possibilities. Originally from Vermont, she’s danced with Street Dance Theater pioneer Rennie Harris and afro-contemporary company Charles O. Anderson/dance theater X. She is currently a Visiting Artist in the Dance department at the University of Vermont. Co-founder of Yes Body : a ‘traveling party’ dedicated to relentless self-progression and the pursuit of fearlessness, her personal projects center community engagement, multi-disciplinary performance, collaborative art making and facilitation, and equitable community dialogue. Her practice is listening. Her interests lie in all the voices of the body fully expressing, no shame, as means to remember, forget and renew the root from which she comes.
