Kate Weare Company : Artists

Adrian Clark, Founding Dancer

Adrian Clark graduated from Connecticut College in 2001, majoring in dance and choreography, after which he had the pleasure of working with Jeremy Nelson, Luis Lara Malvacias, Julie Atlas Muz, Tamar Rogoth, Tami Stronach, Ori Flomin and Donna Uchizono. He has been thrilled to be an integral part of Kate Weare Company since 2005, becoming Rehearsal Director in 2009. Clark teaches technique and partnering at colleges and festivals around the country. The San Francisco Chronicle’s Allan Ulrich wrote: “Clark is cool and unpredictable...his performance basks in a hair-trigger exhibition of technique.”
