BIO

KELSIE STEIL graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelors in Adventure Education and a Minor in Dance in May 2018. There she received the 2018 Contemporary Dance Ensemble award for her achievements in choreography. One of her most prized works is a duet danced between herself and dancer Maxwell Auger called IMMORTAL!. Its most recent showing was in FAB15 in February 2020 and is funded in part by New England Foundation for the Arts’ New England Dance Fund, with generous support from the Aliad Fund at the Boston Foundation. In November 2019 she presented her piece Cast in Maine Moves IV. Kelsie has had the joy of living, dancing, and teaching locally and internationally. One of her major projects was a three-part film made in Lithuania, which can be viewed on her website. Currently, Kelsie dances for Ballet Bloom Project, a project-based contemporary ballet company in Portland, ME, directed by Rose Hutchins. Her most recent work is MR. MIND, a year in the making dance film by the creative partnership of Kelsie and Maxwell Auger. The film is currently being submitted nationally and internationally to dance film festivals.  In the midst of making dance works, she works as a Pilates Instructor and an Outdoor Educator for a small elementary school.
