Contact:  tmuller@oakland.edu


In the spring of 2017, Teresa completed her M.F.A. in Dance at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She was awarded the opportunity to choreograph for the 2016 Masters Performance Workshop at Tisch Dance, as well as present work at the 14th Street YMCA. Her time at NYU allowed her to train with a multitude of artists, including Ori Flomin, Loni Landon, Bobbi Jean Smith and Diane Madden of the Trisha Brown Dance Company. Since moving back to her home of Metro Detroit, Teresa has been performing and touring with the Detroit-based, queer dance company Kristi Faulkner Dance and is a co-creator of the Detroit Dance Exchange—a choreographic festival for dance makers to present work with the option of receiving community feedback. She is also a founding member of Collective Sweat Detroit—a community-led collective of dancers interested in holding space for dance in Detroit. CSD was awarded a prestigious 2018 Knights Arts Challenge Grant, receiving funding over two years to bring more opportunities to professional dance artists based in Detroit. Currently, Teresa is an adjunct lecturer of dance at Oakland University, a company member with OU resident company Take Root and a freelance artist across the nation.
