The Ann & Weston Hicks Choreography Fellows Program | Director
Bebe Miller, a native New Yorker, formed Bebe Miller Company in 1985 to pursue her interest in finding a physical language for the human condition. She has collaborated with artists along with the dancers who share her studio practice and from whom she has learned what dancing can reveal. Her work has been performed in Europe, Asia, and Africa as well as the U.S., and has been commissioned by Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Oregon Ballet Theater, Boston Ballet, PHILADANCO!, and the UK’s Phoenix Dance Company, among others. Miller has received four New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” awards, and in 2005 was honored by the Kennedy Center as one of the Masters of African American Choreography. A Professor in The Ohio State University’s Department of Dance from 2000 through 2016, she is a United States Artists Ford Fellow and received a Doris Duke Foundation Artist Award in 2012.
