Amy Love Beasley
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.
