Willing to travel
Terri Ayanna Wright, is a professional dancer, choreographer, teacher, and video editor based in New York City. After graduating from Fordham University with a dual degree in dance and computer science, Ms. Wright traveled internationally as a dancer on tour with Ailey II, through which she was exposed to a wide-range of live production teams, settings, and audiences. She most recently finished her first season with The Met Opera, as an ensemble dancer in Porgy & Bess. Through this experience, she began exploring the many facets of putting on a live performance, beyond the act itself. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Design & Technology at Parsons, as a means of finding unique ways of bringing dance into a virtual space. She is looking forward to expanding on her virtual story-telling capabilities, through the marriage of dance, film, and visual effects. You may catch Terri live every Sunday and Wednesday, as an online Horton teacher for The Ailey Extension.
