"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's second company in September 2009 and was promoted to the main company in September 2011. I have originated roles in works by Alonzo King, Kyle Abraham, Alejandro Cerrudo, Brian Brooks, Lucas Crandall, and Robyn Mineko Williams, and have performed repertoire by choreographers including Nacho Duato, Mats Ek, Crystal Pite, Sharon Eyal, William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin, and Jiří Kylián.
I have created choreographic work through Hubbard Street’s "danc(e)volve: New Works Festival" and annual "Inside/Out Choreographic Workshop" since 2012. I have also choreographed for Loyola University, Visceral Dance Chicago, SALT Contemporary Dance‘s LINK Festival, The Juilliard School, Neos Dance Theater, The Cambrian's "Nexus Project", 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. In 2016 I was selected as a winner of Hubbard Street's International Commissioning Project and created "Clan(device)" for HS2, a piece which was later moved into the main company repertoire. In the summer of 2017 I was chosen as a winner of NW Dance Project's 2017 Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition, through which I premiered two new works on their "LAUNCH" program. Most recently I have been named Hubbard Street's Choreographic Fellow, a winner of Whim W’him’s Choreographic Shindig competition, and one of Dance Magazine's 25 to Watch.
