Nina Winthrop’s Inner Elation is a journey, both solitary and universal, of discovery and acceptance. Her choreography conveys emotions into the visible realm. Simple gestures – reaching, stretching, pulling, punching – physicalize a relentless current of emotions. Winthrop’s work employs highly focused dancing/movement to riveting effect.

Nina Winthrop formed her company, Nina Winthrop and Dancers, in 1991. Her works have been presented in venues throughout New York and Los Angeles, including Danspace Project, Joyce SoHo, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Mabou Mines’ Toronada Theater at PS 122, Roulette, Basilica Hudson, and The Flea Theater. Winthrop was the curator of Dance Conversations @ The Flea from 2005 to 2013. A graduate of Bennington College, Winthrop danced with Wendy Perron, Susan Rethorst, Yoshiko Chuma, Sally Silvers, and Kei Takei, with whom she toured the U.S. and Japan, and studied with Erick Hawkins, Merce Cunningham, and Deborah Hay.
