Rork Maiellano | Choreographer, Dancer

Rork Maiellano, native to Rochester, New York, started formal dance training at the age of twenty-seven. He received his BFA from SUNY Purchase, and while the visual arts have remained a steady practice, he decided to pursue new challenges and opportunities with movement. For three years he has danced and performed with Rochester Dance Theatre under the direction of Ms. Erika Ruegemer. He loves the way dance and movement have helped him to feel more at home in his body, more aware of the space around him, and more attentive to how the body communicates.
