Proud of her Bay Area origin, Jennifer Roit relocated to the east coast to attend NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. While completing her B.F.A. in Dance, Jennifer worked with choreographers such as Karole Armitage, Bill Young, and Dwight Rhoden. After graduating, she continued her dance career performing with diverse groups including Gaddy Works, Arch Dance Company, Mark Dendy, Nathan Trice/Rituals, and Transcendance Group, as well as in film shorts and music videos. Outdoor performances of note include the Inside/Out festival at Jacob's Pillow and Ritual Cyclical for the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival. When not in the studio, Jennifer enjoys her role working on the TERP system, an invention by Patrice M. Regnier, which merges technology and dance via wireless broadcasting of simple choreography.
Over the last year, Jennifer began to pursue choreography, set work for music videos, and participate in choreography projects such as MaD Circle presented by Composer’s Voice. She was recently selected for the Breaking Glass Project, a mentorship program offering artistic and administrative consultation for emerging female choreographers. She is happy to present her upcoming work In(de)spiration this September at Spoke the Hub as part of the People’s Choice Award Concert.
