About

My name is Patricia Keleher, I am from San Francisco, California, living now in Lisbon Portugal for the past 6 years. I have been dancing with professional dance companies for over 8 years now, including San Francisco Ballet,(2010-2012) https://www.sfballet.org/ North Carolina Dance Theatre (2012-2013) http://charlotteballet.org/ and Companhia Nacional de Bailado https://www.cnb.pt/ (2013-2018 Lisbon, Portugal)  At the moment I am currently working as a freelance artist/dancer with the Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck as well as beginning to create my own work with a focus on community and social issues.

Over the years I have experienced a wide variety of different styles performing classical full-lengths, neo-classical ballets as well as new creations and experimental contemporary work. I have had the pleasure of working on creations as well as dancing existing works by Jiri Bubenicek, Dwight Rhoden, Ohad Naharin, Anne Teresa De Keermaeker, Hans Van Manen, Twyla Tharp, and Olga Roriz, among others. I would consider myself a diverse dancer with a large drive and passion for my work. My hope for my new life as a freelance artist is to find projects and people who inspire me as a person and artist, as well as to invest my time in work that is meaningful to me.
