Katie Pustizzi, MFA (she, her, hers) is an Interdisciplinary Movement Artist in the greater Boston area. She has been teaching at Gann Academy for ten years. Katie also serves as an Adjunct Professor of Dance at Dean College and Emmanuel College. She is the creative visionary and director of “Liquid Spine”, a global dance series that explores the interconnectedness of our water systems through ecology and conservation. Her artistic practices are driven by improvisational and experiential movement forms. Katie’s works for performance always contain moments of chance connection, via scored works or completely free-form improvisations.
Katie is deeply interested in international exchange as a form of artistic research and connection. In 2019, she explored Gaga with Batsheva Dance Company in Israel on a professional development grant from Gann Academy. In 2022, she explored Dance and Perception with Senza Confini Di Pelle in Sardinia, Italy through the Aiken Scholarship from Wilson College, her alma mater.
