Chriselle Tidrick/Above And Beyond Dance

Performing Art – New York - Brooklyn

Chriselle Tidrick founded Above and Beyond Dance in 2007. A former competitive gymnast, she has performed extensively as a dancer and stilt dancer with various New York based companies. She has also choreographed dance work, stilt work, and aerial work. Her interest lies in merging modern dance with circus arts, and she feels there is a huge range of untapped potential in this blend.
