Maré Hieronimus is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary dance artist, performer and teacher whose work weaves together her interests in movement, light, sound, poetry, and perceptual awareness. Often working as a solo performer while collaborating with artists of diverse disciplines, and drawing from her interests in memory, sensory perception, embodiment, and the interface between body/land, she creates abstract, minimalistic, and psychic Dance Art environments using the subtle, shifting field of the body as the point of origin. As a dancer she has had the opportunity to perform extensively, touring internationally to Russia, Siberia, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico. As a movement educator and Yoga Teacher, she teaches widely at University and Institutional settings, Festivals and Studios. Committed to the practice of movement as a healing art form, her unique approach, under the umbrella The Body Archive, is a synthesis of her studies in Yoga, somatic based practices, dance, and Ayurvedic and Vedic Philosophy. Through her classes she facilitates an experience of the subtler aspects of yoga, the innate wisdom of the dancing body, and our interconnectedness to the natural world.
Maré holds an MFA in Dance from Sarah Lawrence College, a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design, is a certified Movement Analyst through the Laban Institute of Movement Studies, a Certified Yoga Teacher through Integral Yoga, and is currently Studying Ayurvedic Healing through the American Institute of Vedic Studies.
