Nic Gareiss Bio:

Named by Dance Magazine as one of 2019's "25 to Watch," dancer and dance researcher Nic Gareiss has been hailed by the New York Times for his "dexterous melding of Irish and Appalachian dance" and called "the most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene” by the Boston Herald. He reimagines movement as a musical practice, recasting dance as medium that appeals to both eyes and ears. Originally from Michigan, Gareiss draws from many percussive dance traditions, weaving together a dance technique facilitating his love of improvisation, traditional footwork vocabulary, and musical collaboration. He has concertized in fifteen countries for over ten years with many of the luminaries of traditional music and dance including The Chieftains, The Gloaming, Bruce Molsky, Sandy Silva, Ira Bernstein, Colin Dunne, Alasdair Fraser, Phil Wiggins, Liz Carroll, and Darol Anger. He has performed at London's Barbican Centre, the Irish National Concert Hall, the Munich Philharmonic, and the Kennedy Center. Nic holds degrees in Anthropology and Music from Central Michigan University and a MA in Ethnochoreology from the University of Limerick. His current collaborators include ensembles This is How we Fly, DuoDuo, and Alasdair Fraser's New World Assembly, and duo projects with Maeve Gilchrist, Ultan O'Brien, Simon Chrisman, Allison de Groot, and Caleb Teicher.
