Justice Miles: Artistic Visionary/Choreographer

Justice Miles is a biracial dance artist, choreographer and scholar originally from Denver, Colorado. Miles received her BA in Dance from Colorado College and an MFA from University of New Mexico. She has performed Balinese and Flamenco dance professionally and taught for Cleo Parker Robinson.

Her evening-length work Ink on Cotton explored African American history and imagery through contemporary dance and flamenco. She was invited to perform excerpts as an emerging choreographer at Meira Goldberg's international conference The Body Questions: Celebrating Flamenco's Tangled Roots in New York City and was invited to present her dissertation research on Carmen Amaya and Josephine Baker at the international bilingual conference Indígenas, africanos, roma and europeos: Ritmos transatlánticos en música, canto y baile in Veracruz, Mexico.

Her academic interests lie in African American history and imagery through contemporary dance and flamenco and has been invited to present and international conferences. Miles continues to create work that explores race, gender and identity; she works towards creating an inclusive dance world that is open to people of all ages, races, sexual orientations and abilities.

Her work will be seen in W&L Repertory Dance Concert 2023.
