Work Durham North Carolina Website: Jasmine Powell Creative Expressionist

Biography

Photo of Jasmine Powell

Jasmine Powell is a dance artist, and educator from Hillsborough, NC who grew up in the Durham dance scene through Carolina Friends School and Collage Dance Company. She holds a BA from Oberlin College and an MFA from Hollins University in collaboration with the American Dance Festival (ADF) and Frankfurt University for Music and Performing Arts in Germany. As a creative expressionist, Jasmine boldly embraces the vision of diverse art forms as a distinct way of storytelling and exploring relationships across disciplines. With a solid background in the biological sciences and scientific research, she continually finds ways to integrate the inherent curiosity and embodied movement through artistic expression. Ms. Powell is currently on the performing arts faculty as Assistant Professor at Elon University, and teaches in surrounding communities where she brings cultural history into the technique of their dance curriculum or programming. Having worked with diasporic dance companies including PHILADANCO! (The Philadelphia Dance Company) and D/2, as well as notable choreographers such as Dianne McIntyre, Milton Myers, and Ronald K. Brown, her inspired mission investigates genre-crossing dance as an inquiry into how opposites can be embodied in each other. She joyfully dances with COMPANY and KT DANCE COLLECTIVE at present, while her own choreography has traveled into performing arts theaters, with DIDA’s 5th season “Approximation of a Woman”, 2nd season “Shadows Chasing Light”, site-specific work with Wake Forest Dance Festival, international film festivals, and music videos with Kaira Ba “Mbolo” and Kwanza Jones “Problem PSA” all with conceptual storytelling as the foundation. Jasmine is thankful to have received scholarships, fellowships, and a Pilates certification to continue her passion to learn and share. Finding the value in exploring embodied personal stories through her teaching, workshops, performing and choreographic outlets, Jasmine is always reaching to find new ways to connect to her community and hopes to always provide that value! http://www.jasminepowell.co/ social media: @iamjasminepowell
