Selene Carter received her MFA in dance from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. As a Chicago dance artist she received a Ruth Page Award, the city’s highest honor in dance, for her improvisational work, as well as funding from city agencies and private foundations. For five years she was co-director of Links Hall where she produced workshops in alternative dance and improvisation, creating a forum for post-modern and experimental dance in Chicago. She has taught improvisation and dance studies at the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago, the University of Chicago and the Chicago Academy of the Arts. She presented her research on Lester Horton at the Society of Dance History Scholars Annual Conference in June 2009, and in July began working towards her certification in Bill Evans’ Laban Based Modern Dance Technique.
