Morgan Burns

InSpira EXP Ballet InStructor

Originally from Atlanta, Ga, is a 2020 graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Department of Dance. She has trained classically in ballet, pointe technique, tap, jazz, and hip-hop styles. In her own creative practices, filmmaking and dance unite to provoke emotional curiosity about how we, humans, move through the world often in conversation with elements of the natural world. Morgan’s creative pursuits have been recognized by NYC based company GALLIM with a Moving Women Residency and by the Consulate General of Canada in NYC with the support and creation of her collaborative film “spring promise FUTURES” (2021). She was named the Inaugural Recipient of the Merce Cunningham Trust Barbara Ensley Award (2022). As a performer, works such as “Retrofit:A New Age” (2022) by Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Reiner have pushed Morgan further down paths of performance art, improvisational performance, and site-specific research. Notably, in 2020 she was able to work with one of her hometown heroes T. Lang on her virtual reality choreographic work “Out From the Deep: A Meditation for Them Turners. Her most recent site-specific performance was in collaboration with Multidisciplinary Artist Kilo Kish with their work “Still Dreaming” as a part of Time Square Arts Council x Woman in Windows. 2023 began with a LIftOff residency with the New Dance Alliance where she planted the seeds for her work in progress “Black Girls Who Don’t Like Watermelon Unite”, set to premiere this summer as a part of New Dance Alliance’s Performance Mix Festival in New York City.
