Ellen Smith Ahern (she/her)
January 8 Morning Training Instructor
Ellen Smith Ahern is a dance artist and social worker/community organizer living with her family on Abenaki lands in N’Dakinna/New Hampshire. As a 2023 Creative Community Fellow with National Art Strategies, her dances explore the intersection of movement, storytelling and nature, creating performance projects that include a wider array of people than might otherwise feel welcomed into traditional dance spaces. With generous support from granting institutions and community members, Ellen has shared her work throughout Mexico, Cuba, Qatar, Europe and the US, collaborating with many artists, including Jane Comfort & Company, Lida Winfield, Kate Elias, Rebecca Pappas, Tiffany Rhynard and El Circo Contemporaneo.
