Artist Statement

Erin Nichole Boyt

I make art without all the nonsense attached to making art. I believe that the skill of a dancer is taking intelligent risks and that dance doesn’t have to be something that we abuse ourselves for.

I believe that:

- Ease of movement creates room for expression.

- The physical and emotional are not only connected- they are inseparable.

- The the relationship between music and dance is a playful one.

- Effective art ties together the common thread of humanity. (It’s also way more fun to make!)

- Traditional dance technique is only one way of doing things. It’s a point of departure, not doctrine.

-Art doesn’t have to be innovative. It just has to be authentic.

I enjoy exploring body language as source material, playing with gravity, patterns, and telling stories. I want the dances I create to be dynamic, interesting, and relatable.
