Rhode Island Women's Choreography Project
Haley Andrews, originally from Middleboro, Massachusetts is a New England based dancer, choreographer, and educator. She graduated from Salve Regina University with a BA in English Communications, accompanied by her dance minor in 2018. Upon graduation, Andrews was the recipient of the Salve Regina University Dance Award. During her time at Salve, she was a dancer/choreographer for Extensions Dance Company, performed and presented choreography at American College Dance Association, and was a captain for SRU Dance Club. Her work 1,968.4 Miles of Vulnerability was one of just nine pieces selected for the Gala Concert at ACDA 2018 in which the adjudicators called her work “evocative” and praised her movement invention. That same piece was then selected to be showcased in Boston Contemporary Dance Festival August of 2018 at the historical Huntington Theatre.
After graduation Haley relocated to Boulder, Colorado where she began to further develop her Project based Contemporary company, Andrews Movement. Since then, her choreography has been presented at BandChicago Dance Festival at Hubbard Street Dance (2019), Versatility Dance Fest Colorado & California (2019), in Salve Regina University Company Concerts (2019, 2021), and most recently at Mash Up Dance’s International Women’s Day Festival in California (2022). Throughout her time in CO, Haley danced with T2 Dance Company, a Contemporary company based out of Boulder, CO. She spent 2019 and part of the 2020 season performing, choreographing, and touring with them.
Currently, Haley resides back in New England and works at Salve Regina University as an Adjunct Professor of Contemporary Dance. You can also find her instructing various Adult Drop-In style Contemporary classes around the greater Boston area. Whilst instructing, Haley continues to build repertoire for Andrews Movement with goals to premiere new work nationwide throughout the 2022 season. Haley Andrews is a passionate arts advocate who works to instill social and equitable change in the world, and her own community through her art.
This is Haley's second time choreographing for RIWCP.
