ANDI SCHERMOLY

CHOREOGRAPHER

BIO

A little bit about me.

In December 2018 I was the first female to be appointed resident choreographer of Louisville Ballet in Louisville, Kentucky. I have created four original works for the company, three of which were staged in collaboration with the Louisville Orchestra. I am thrilled to announce that my new choreography for the quintessential American ballet, Appalachian Spring, performed with the Louisville Orchestra in February 2019, is scheduled to go to Carnegie Hall, New York, in February 2021.

I was trained in South Africa and studied ballet and contemporary on scholarship at the Rambert Ballet School and Royal Ballet School in London, England. A professional dance career that included a number of years at Boston Ballet and the Nederlands Dans Theater ended abruptly due to injury.

Then my enduring love of choreography, which began as a child, was given rein to flourish with the support of schools and companies throughout the USA, in New Zealand, and in the country of my birth, South Africa.

I have since been awarded the ‘Outstanding Choreographer’ award at Youth America Grand Prix three times. I have created original works for Louisville Ballet, Kansas City Ballet, Royal New Zealand Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, Grand Rapids Ballet, Festival Ballet Theatre, Columbia Ballet Collaborative, Ballet Theatre Afrikan, Cape Dance Company, Ballet Met, Santa Barbara Dance Theatre, State Street Ballet, Barak Ballet, The Joffrey Ballet Concert Group, and more. Other works include The Ashley Bouder Project, Bunheads television series, the movie Beautiful Now, Justin Beiber music video, and the Budweiser Superbowl television commercial, Star Trek Into Darkness.

It has also been my great pleasure and honor to work with some of the world’s best international ballet stars, who have either commissioned original solo works or danced in original pieces for gala events. They include, Ana Sophia Scheller (NYCB), Nicolai Gorodiski (PB), Chase Finlay (NYCB), Lauren Lovette (NYCB), Sara Mearns (NYCB), Adiarys Almeida, Maria Kochetkova (SFB), and Joaquin De Luz (formerly NYCB) now director of the Spanish National Dance Company.
