Harrison Center intern Caitlin Cutsinger has been in and out of the dance studio since she was a baby in a pumpkin seat. No stranger to the dance scene, she has studied ballet, modern, contemporary jazz, lyrical and competitive Irish Dance. She comes from a family of talent and creativity. Her mom, Laurie, is a dancer and her dad, Mark, is a Zero Boy, so it felt pretty natural for her to pursue an internship at the HCA.
Caitlin, a Herron High School senior, wanted to collaborate with other artists and share her art form in a creative way and it's been pretty cool. She been a fixture during First Fridays for the last 6 months, often choreographing pieces inspired by the latest exhibit. She even performed her audition piece for The Juilliard School. In October she danced to "intro" by Alt-J in the Harrison Gallery inspired by painter Nathan Foxton's show "The Hunt." In May, she will brought in another dancer to perform with her.
When asked if she could dance anywhere in the world and to any music, what would it be, her response was: outside or in a subway in New York City to music being played by a street performer . . . because she's hip like that.
