Hanna Satterlee

Choreographer and dancer Hanna Satterlee grew up in East Montpelier, Vermont and creates performances and conceptual artworks through dance. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, her works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. Hanna holds a double BA in Dance/Psychology with a concentration in Dance Therapy from Goucher College and a Masters in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College. From 2010-15 Hanna served as the Director of Professional Programming & Director of Teen Jazz at the Contemporary Dance & Fitness Studio in Montpelier Vermont, USA,  and has been a guest lecturer at Johnson State College and Middlebury College, and adjunct faculty at Vermont Law School, Northern Vermont University and the University of Vermont. In May ’17 Hanna founded the non-profit Vermont Dance Alliance, and now serves as the Executive Director both managing a statewide network of dance artists, partners and patrons, as well as producing and curating high-quality dance events and opportunities for the public. In continuous conversation as a curator, an educator, a choreographer and a performer, Hanna is as passionate for the form of dance as she is in connecting people to it.
