April Sellers

Sellers came to dance and welcomed dance because, as a woman from a small town, dance celebrated alternative voices. In dance, she found a long history of females creating change. In addition to choreography and performing, Sellers is renowned for her workshops, curatorial practice, and community engagements. Through the work of ASDC, she uses dance to tell the stories of her generation and provide a platform for other voices and experiences to be heard.

Proclaimed “Best Dance Performance” in 2015 by City Pages (Minneapolis/St. Paul). Sellers received numerous awards including a Sage Award (2006), Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grants (2015, 2002), McKnight Fellowship for Choreography (2011). Over the past decade, Sellers has been invited to participate in a number of residencies, including Djerassi Resident Artists Program (Santa Cruz, California), the Maggie Allessee National Center for Choreography (Tallahassee, Florida), and the Boston Center for the Arts.

Sellers holds her MFA in Dance from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
