Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Ellie Carter danced professionally with BalletMet, American Repertory Ballet, and Eisenhower Dance Ensemble. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Southern Methodist University and earned her MFA from The Ohio State University, where she was a University Fellow and a Graduate Teaching Associate. Carter was on the faculty at both the Princeton Ballet School and the Eisenhower Dance Ensemble Center for Dance. As a dancer, a teacher of dance, and a maker of dance, Carter seeks to evoke embodied meaning by exploring her own, as well as her collaborators’/dancers’, physicalities, movement histories, and virtuosity. While at OSU, she received funding from the Presutti-Madison Memorial Dance Fund and an Alumni Grant for Graduate Research and Scholarship to support her work. Most recently, Carter worked as a Lecturer at The Ohio State University and a Visiting Assistant Professor of Dance at Kenyon College, where she taught Ballet, Ballet Pedagogy, Writing About Dance, and Dance History.
