Liz Houlton is a Minnesota native and California Institute of the Arts alum, currently residing in Seattle, WA. Liz has presented works with Capitol Hill Art Walk at LoveCityLove, Seattle International Dance Festival, Seattle Fringe Festival, and Chop Shop Bodies of Work 2016.
Her work “Close Quarters in a Large World” was commissioned by Minnesota Dance Theatre for their Fall 2015 Season, as well as performed at the Cowles Center by MDT School students that same year.
Throughout her time in Seattle she has been fortunate enough to have received Creative Residencies with Velocity Dance Center, as well as the Argento Dance Grant during it’s inaugural year in 2016. Although she spent summers at Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet, Miami City Ballet, BodyTraffic, and the Limon Workshop West, Liz considers herself a thoroughly contemporary artist, functioning in-between genres to blur expectations and encourage authenticity.
