How do we move through the world with more curiosity?

Ruby's work as a choreographer and dancer holds space for intimate dialogue and discovered self-awareness. Her fluid and gestural movement is created in resonance with that vibrant energy that exists within us all. She treads across borders, teases out the inner, hidden matter, and believes in the power of story-telling through the sensual form of the human body.


Ruby grew up surrounded by the arts, encouraged to write, draw and perform from an early stage. Being constantly drawn towards the body as a medium from which to create, she began training in contemporary dance from a young age and eventually declared a dance and composition major at Oberlin College and Conservatory. However, her curiosity and passion for the world quickly launched her into a life of travel, continuing her training at studios in London, Berlin, and taking part in residencies and intensives across Europe. She finally landed in Tangier, Morocco, where she is now based, introducing contemporary dance as an emerging art form in the city, choreographing works and teaching classes- often in three languages at once. Her choreography has been commissioned and sponsored by the US Embassy of Morocco, the French Institute of Tangier, the American Language Center Network in Morocco, and the American Legation of Tangier. Her love of travel continues to take her abroad frequently, performing her work in festivals in Spain, France and offering residencies and dance consultancy to the American International School network.
