Julia Crockett & Group

Julia Crockett is an actor, choreographer, and movement specialist. She works with professional actors, fashion designers, visual artists, and people from all backgrounds to unlock their creativity, expand their capacity for connection, and develop a deeper understanding of their physical selves.

In 2011, Crockett founded Julia Crockett & Group - a collective designed to provide a creative home for all movement artists, whether or not they have been formally trained. Much of the group’s work is ensemble driven and developed through Crockett’s singular teaching and choreographic style. The foundation of the company’s vocabulary is created through Crockett’s open movement sessions, or “jams” - extended long form improvisations with a strong emphasis placed on freedom, play, and group contact.

Crockett’s choreographic work has been shown in multiple venues throughout New York City, as well as Los Angeles and San Francisco. She was a 2014 Leimay Fellowship Recipient and has presented work at National Sawdust, Company Gallery, Signal, Jack Chiles Gallery, Judson Church, Danspace, Haeler Echo, Home Alone 2, Chins Push (LA), and Will Brown (SF). She is a member of Virago Performance Company. She has also collaborated with musicians and designers such as Aerial East, Chen Chen and Kai Williams, BODE for NYFW: Mens, and Calyx Intimates. Most recent acting credits include MindHunter (Netflix, Dir. David Fincher), Outcast (Cinemax, Fox International), Blindspot (NBC), Mr. Robot (USA), Law & Order; Criminal Intent (NBC). She played the title role in Aquila Theater Company’s A Female Philoctetes at BAM Fisher - and later toured the space piece to Athens, Greece, working with Veterans and refugees overseas. She has performed and taught in several correctional facilities throughout the New York, Tri-State area.

Crockett currently teaches at New York University, Parsons School of Design, The Maggie Flanagan Studio, and the Terry Knickerbocker Studio.
