Andrea Miller is the founder, artistic director, and choreographer of New York-based Gallim Dance. Through a plural body of work Miller has developed a recognizable artistic language of insatiable curiosity, absolute physicality, and unprejudiced emotionality. Her work is performed by Gallim Dance and premiere companies throughout the world in venues as diverse as The Royal Opera House in London to Grand Central Station. New York Magazine writes, “Her viscerally physical movement wrings every inch of life from her dancers — and you’ll be holding your breath, too.”

Miller is the recipient of multiple awards: in 2014 she received the honor of being named a Guggenheim Fellow by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation for demonstrating exceptional creative ability. Other awards include Sadler’s Wells Jerwood Fellowships (2012 and 2013), Princess Grace Foundation Special Projects Awards (2012, 2013, and 2015), New York City Center Choreography Fellowship (2011-2012), Joyce Theater Artist in Residence (2011-2012), Youth America Grand Prix Award for Emerging Choreographers (2011), Wesleyan University’s Mariam McGlone Emerging Choreographer Award (2011), Princess Grace Foundation Works in Progress Award (2010), Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch (2009), and Princess Grace Foundation Fellowship in Choreography (2009).

Miller’s choreography has been commissioned for Gallim Dance and companies throughout the world including Peak Performances at Montclair State University, Dancers’ Workshop — Jackson Hole, Nederlands Dans Theater 2, Ballet Bern at the Royal Opera House of London, Noord Nederlands Dans, and Phantom Limb’s production 69° South for BAM’s Next Wave (2011). Her commercial and art direction work includes installations for Hermès, Calvin Klein, Fabergé, movement coaching for Kate Upton at VOGUE, choreography for the film The Life and Death of Mick Rock, and the opening of SLS Miami and Las Vegas. Miller also served as Associate Artistic Director of Noord Nederlands Dans from 2010-2011.


Miller is devoted to dance education for dancers and non-dancers and has developed programs for Gallim Dance’s home studio in Brooklyn, as well as commissions and reconstructions for over 40 academic institutions such as Harvard University, the Juilliard School, Barnard College at Columbia University, and New York University. She is adjunct faculty at Barnard College at Columbia University, a founding collaborator of Movement Invention Project and resident choreographer at Dancewave in Brooklyn.
