Sydney she/her

The work that I create is interdisciplinary, and site-specific. I am fascinated with deconstructing codified forms, using space as a collaborator; creating choreography that is inspired by different art mediums. In a composition class, I lead students to find movement that is authentic to them. I value collaborative efforts that are multi-disciplinary involving programs and faculty across campus that encourage nuances inspired by all forms of art. This kind of collaboration consistently involves design, music, and multimedia arts. The Creative Arts Success Team I lead looks at strategies to close equity gaps in support of a diverse student body. My goal is to create a community on campus inside and outside of the classroom where people come together to learn and grow from each other.

My Story

Sydney Sorenson is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, where she graduated Cum Laude from the University of Utah in 2013 with a BFA in Modern Dance and then had the pleasure of working with L.A. Contemporary Dance Company under the direction of Kate Hutter. 


Her professional experience involves performing in Crystal Pite’s “Polaris” a part of the White Light Festival at City Center, co-starring in ABC Family’s The Mistle-Tones as a Snowbelle, and performing professionally with NOW-ID in various site-specific performances alongside Charlotte Boye-Christense, as an extension of her practice. 

In 2017 Sydney received her MFA from New York University Tisch School of the Arts. While in school she started her path with multi-disciplinary art. Sydney has worked with choreographers such as Alan Hineline, Alex Little, Bonnie Story, Jaci Royal, Ori Flomin, Ricky Palomino, Sidra Bell, Talia Favia, and Tokyo Inouye. She has been seen on A Chance to Dance, and has previously toured with Helene Fischer, performed with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Grimes, and the Utah Jazz. Previously, she has taught at Ballet Lubbock and as an adjunct at Texas Tech University. This summer, she worked with students at Joffrey Ballet in Georgia. As a choreographer, her research agenda involves interdisciplinary site-specific work as another layer of performance. Currently, Sydney is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Allan Hancock College in California.
