BIO

Born in Paris France, Indiana Woodward’s earliest memories are of watching ballet class and being backstage in the theater. After moving to Los Angeles, Indiana began training with Yuri Grigoriev and it was from that moment that she knew that this was going to be her lifelong passion and career.

Indiana began studying at the School of American Ballet in the summer of 2010 and joined the school as a full time student in the fall of 2010. In August 2012 Ms. Woodward became an apprentice with New York City Ballet and a full member of the company in December of the same year. Indiana was promoted to soloist in February 2017.

Ms. Woodward is a recipient of the 2016 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and 2016 Clive Barnes Foundation Award. In 2010, she won first place in the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive in New York City and was invited to perform at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy gala in Moscow.

Paul Taylor established Taylor 2 Dance Company in 1993 to ensure that his works could be seen by audiences all over the world regardless of economic considerations and the logistical limitations of non-traditional venues.  He worked with longtime colleague Linda Hodes to create a company that could accommodate performance requests, teach classes, and provide community outreach.  With six dancers, Taylor 2 is the same size as Mr. Taylor’s original Company.  In selecting repertoire for Taylor 2, Mr. Taylor chose dances that reveal the broad spectrum of his work, sometimes reworking the original version to fit the smaller ensemble.  Taylor 2’s engagements are flexible and are customized to meet the needs of each community.  They often consist of master classes and lecture/demonstrations in addition to performances that often take place in non-traditional venues as well as in theaters.

Orchestra of St. Luke’s was formed in 1979 when St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble, founded in 1974, expanded to perform orchestral works at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, where OSL remains as the center’s summer orchestra-in-residence today. Each season, the Orchestra performs at New York’s major concert venues, playing a wide range of musical styles and genres and collaborating with artists ranging from Renée Fleming and Joshua Bell to Bono and Metallica. The Orchestra has participated in 118 recordings, four of which have won Grammy Awards, has commissioned more than 50 new works, and has given more than 175 world, U.S., and New York City premieres. In September 2018, the world-renowned conductor of Baroque and Classical repertoire Bernard Labadie joined OSL as Principal Conductor, continuing the Orchestra’s long tradition of working with champions of historical performance practice.

I want to lift the audience to the miraculous in human nature. After all, we shouldn’t be here, with all the odds against us in nature. It’s kind of unusual and wonderful!
