"Densely dimensional, unpredictable, strangely graceful and wild, Alice Klock's dances are like elegant ribbons caught in hopelessly tangled knots. "
I began dancing at age 11. I trained at Interlochen Arts Academy from 2003–07, and at the Alonzo King LINES Ballet and Dominican University of California’s joint BFA program from 2007–09, in addition to dance studies at Boston Ballet School, Canada’s National Ballet School, Miami City Ballet School, San Francisco Ballet School, the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance and Springboard Danse Montréal.
I joined Hubbard Street Dance Chicago in September 2009 and danced with the company for nine years. As a dancer I originated roles in works by Alonzo King, Kyle Abraham, Alejandro Cerrudo, Brian Brooks, Lucas Crandall, and Robyn Mineko Williams, and performed repertoire by choreographers including Nacho Duato, Mats Ek, Crystal Pite, Sharon Eyal, William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin, and Jiří Kylián.
Alongside performing I have created choreographic work for Hubbard Street, Whim W’Him, Alonzo King LINES Ballet BFA, Loyola University, Visceral Dance Chicago, SALT Contemporary Dance‘s LINK Festival, The Juilliard School, Neos Dance Theater, Peridance’s BLUEPRINT, The Cambrians, and NW Dance Project's "LAUNCH". I have enjoyed participating as a choreographer in collaborations with the Art Institute of Chicago, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the International Beethoven Project. I have been a winner of numerous choreographic competitions including Hubbard Street's International Commissioning Project, NW Dance Project's Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition, and Whim W’him’s Choreographic Shindig. In 2017 I was named Hubbard Street's Choreographic Fellow and in 2018 was named one of Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch.
Alongside my individual work I create, perform, teach, and travel as part of FLOCK, a co-choreography project formed by Florian Lochner and myself.
