critical acclaim

Silvia Martins has danced in the companies of Jose' Limon, Mark Morris, Molissa Fenley and Annabelle Gamson in New York and abroad. She is a dancer/ teacher/ choreographer who now performs as soloist and lectures on Modern Technique and Composition for the Theater Arts Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

As a soloist she has performed to critical acclaim throughout the United States and her choreography has been seen in California, Minnesota and Utah.

As a performer, Ms. Martins collaborates in the restoration of great works of the past, and she supports the work of the wide-ranging choreographic styles and vision of the modern choreographers with whom she has worked. Her technique and experience has produced stunning performances of these works in full-evening solo concerts.

Ms. Martins has also taught master classes and workshops in the US and Abroad and she has been a panelist for the California Arts Council and for the Santa Cruz Cultural Council. She has a B.A. in Theater Arts from Santa Clara University and an M.F.A. in Modern Dance from the University of Utah.
