Heidi Duckler’s collection of site-specific dance projects crafts moving and meaningful creative experiences in places ranging from parks to office buildings. Duckler promotes the idea of accessibility to public spaces through dance and provides multiple access points to performance where individuals are active, engaged participants rather than passive spectators.
Duckler earned a BS in Dance from the University of Oregon and an MA in Choreography from UCLA. She has choreographed more than 100 original dance works at unique sites in Russia, Hong Kong, New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Portland, Seattle, and throughout Southern California including Los Angeles City Hall, Lincoln Heights Jail, the Los Angeles River, the Herald Examiner Building, the former Ambassador Hotel and the Los Angeles Police Academy. She has received a City of Los Angeles Individual Artist Fellowship and the California DanceMaker Grant from the James Irvine Foundation.
