Caleb Teicher & Company reinvents traditional American dance forms for contemporary contexts. The company’s Inside/Out performance features Meet Ella, a male swing dance duet set to classic live recordings of Ella Fitzgerald. A 2011 Bessie Award Winner for Outstanding Individual Performance, one of Dance Magazine’s 2012 “25 to Watch,” and winner of “Best Emerging Choreographer” for Dance Magazine’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards, Teicher draws from his experience in concert dance, musical theater, and social dance. He has garnered acclaim for his work as a versatile performer, most notably as a member of Dorrance Dance and The Chase Brock Experience. Founded in 2012, his company explores a wide range of styles including tap dance, lindy hop, and vernacular jazz, creating works that celebrate a uniquely American physicality. Teicher is an alumnus of The School at Jacob’s Pillow and the National Young Arts Foundation.
