Ana Silverio

Ana Silvério is an award-winning dance artist and choreographer from Brazil. She likes to develop thoughtful, well-crafted and creative performances that explore topics in a multi-perspective way and storytelling in narrative and abstract forms. At the core of her movement vocabulary is ballet, Brazilian folk dances, physical theatre and contemporary dances.

Ana received a First-class Honours degree in “Choreography, Methodology and Pedagogy of Dance” from the Saint Petersburg University of Humanities and Social Sciences, in Russia.

She is based in York where she founded Terpsichoring dance. A dance company aimed at the creation and touring of original performances and the development of the dance field in the North of Yorkshire. The company aims to have a permanent group of full-time performers and to create shadowing and apprentice opportunities.

Terpsichoring believes in the power of art to change lives and influence society, and in the power of carefully crafted performances to incite thoughts and inspire. Terpsichoring is committed to approaching production decisions with environmental responsibility.
