Amy Love Beasley holds a B.A. in Studio Art from the College of Charleston and a M.F.A in Choreography from the University of North Carolina Greensboro. She brings her experiences as an artist, choreographer, and performer in the field to her teaching. Beasley has had the good fortune of performing across the country for many influential choreographers, including John Gamble, Susan Haines, Gerri Houlihan, BJ Sullivan, Sean Sullivan, Talani Torres, and Jan Van Dyke. Her own work has been performed at several universities, the North Carolina Dance Festival, UNC School of the Arts, Art-o-Matic in Washington, DC and through Triskelion Art’s Waxworks and the Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, NY.

Beasley’s research in dance making and education merges her studies and considers how visual art making and processes intersect with dance making, training, and performance. Inspired by her Yoga practice and teaching, her research in each classroom looks at how mindfulness intersects with learning, moving, and self agency. Before joining the faculty at North Carolina State University, she was on faculty at Elon University, UNC Greensboro, Wake Forest University, and the UNC School of the Arts’ Summer Intensive.

Autumn Mist Belk earned her B.A. in studio art from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and her M.F.A. in dance choreography from the University of Maryland. She also has over 600 hours of yoga pedagogy training and a personal yoga practice spanning more than 15 years. Autumn founded and served as artistic director of the multimedia dance group Code f.a.d. Company from 2008-2020, collaborating with a strong core of dancers, musicians, and artists for over 50 performances across those 12 years.

Autumn’s choreography has been presented throughout the United States and in Hallein, Austria, as part of the international artist festival Schmiede. Autumn also directs FAD: Film-Art-Dance Festival, which includes curating Screendance in Schools – educational programs of dance films complete with lesson plans and learning objective-driven activities for K-12 classrooms. Her own dance films have been screened in festivals around the world, and she has been chosen to participate in artist residencies (making dance films) in Scotland, Italy, Iceland, and Austria. Autumn was honored to be selected as the 2016 winner of the National Dance Society’s Dance Promotion in the Community Award, as an inductee into NC State’s Academy of Outstanding Teachers in 2015, and as a Distinguished Undergraduate Professor by NC State in 2023.
