Phoebe Rose Sandford is a choreographer, modern dancer, and singer with a background in classical ballet. She trained with Susan Jaffe and Risa Kaplowitz of Princeton Dance and Theater Studio and Julie Caprio of Hamilton Ballet Theatre. Her favorite teenage memory is when she went back in time to ensure her parents got together at the high school dance. Phoebe received her BFA with Honors from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, dancing in works by notable choreographers such as Benoit-Swan Pouffer, Deborah Jowitt, David Dorfman, Robert Battle, Larry Keigwin, and Gus Solomons Jr. In 2010, Phoebe was lucky enough to participate in the Trisha Brown Dance Company's fortieth anniversary installation at the Whitney Museum, Off the Wall: Part 2: Seven Works by Trisha Brown, where she performed the iconic performance art piece Floor of the Forest.
Phoebe was a founding member of RedCurrant Collective, and in addition to co-managing, dancing, and choreographing for the collective, she has performed with Anne Zuerner, mishiDance, MoveWorks, Alice Gosti, Jonathan Matthews, The Charles Weidman Foundation, This is Not a Theatre Company, Patricia Hoffbauer, and AMS Project. Theatre credits include Where Have All the Glaciers Gone? with Erin Mee, Versailles 2015 with This Is Not a Theatre Company, Far Away at the Schapiro Theater, and The Bride Project (reading) with Lonesome George. She has performed at The Whitney, Skirball Center, The Ailey Citigroup Theater, Invisible Dog, Dixon Place, 92nd St. Y, NYU's Jack Crystal Theater, Green Space, The Secret Theatre, Triskelion Arts Center, The Green Building, and Actors Fund Arts Center.
Phoebe has presented her own work at La MaMa, Dixon Place, Triskelion Arts, Green Space, NYU's Jack Crystal Theater, Gibney Dance Center, SMUSH Gallery, Home Audio Series, The Craft, Beulahland, and Cameo Gallery. She was the choreographer and co-director for A Presentation by the People of Lake Victory for Our Leader at The Gym at Judson and choreographer for Loud Mouth with Rebel Playhouse. Phoebe is also an Assistant Editor with TDR, certified yoga instructor, and mediocre ukulele player. She would describe her choreography as "fun" and "nice," and would describe herself that way, too. She enjoys fantasy and sci-fi novels and is impressed you got this far in her bio.
