Adaptive Ballet/Modern with Ellice Patterson

May 3 @ 10:30 am 11:30 am PDT

Ellice Patterson poses for the camera, surrounded by green leaves. Elise is a black woman with straight black hair and a tattoo of a dancer surrounded by music notes on her shoulder. She is wearing a black halter top.

Ellice Patterson will utilize her adaptive ballet and modern techniques that she has developed with dancers at Abilities Dance Boston (ADB) to bring movement styles that work for various bodies. In addition, she will share some choreography from an upcoming ADB production.

Ellice is the founder and director of Abilities Dance, a Boston- based dance company that welcomes dancers with and without disabilities. Her work in Abilities is modern focused with an adaptive twist so that dance is accessible to all. Outside of exclusively Abilities Dance’s shows, her choreography has appeared in HUBweek, Bill Evans Somatic Conference, Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, The Series: Vol IV at the Ailey Citigroup Theatre, and more. She has given lectures and workshops at schools, universities, and organizations (such as Harvard, McLean Hospital, Fidelity Investments, Boston University, MS School for Math & Science, and more) across the country. She also earned her Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences from Wellesley College and her Masters of Science in Management Studies from Boston University Questrom School of Business.
