Amy Mastrangelo

Company Member since 2011

LG: You're one of the most senior members of the company. What's your relationship with the other dancers?

AM: As I have been for the last five years, I'm grateful to be a part of Luminarium. I value so much the opportunity to learn and grow as a dancer alongside my fellow company members. Gabby and Nikki have a contagious energy and enthusiasm whenever they move. Alison, Katharina, and Dream have such a refined balance of strength and grace. Melenie and Katie have a joy so visible in their movement, it reminds me why I love to dance just by watching them. I feel like every member of the company brings something unique to our group, which makes for a collection of eclectic and diverse movers. I love being with these people, I love dancing with these people, and above all, I love performing with these people. It's an incredible gift, when you're able to do what you love alongside people that you love.

Amy does creative partnering with some of Luminarium's youngest viewers at Summer in the City 2016. 

LG: You studied dance at Boston University; how does it feel to perform at your alma mater?

AM: Performing at the BU Dance Theater is like coming home for me. I spent hours, semesters, years, of my life in this space, and it is truly an emotional experience to be back within its walls. I'm the dancer I am today because of the classes I took, the pieces I performed, the work I created, and of course, the incredible people I moved with in this theater. I'm so excited and again, grateful, to be in a physical space that is so important to me, and to share it with my Luminarium family.
