While living in both Brooklyn and Alfred New York, D. Chase Angier creates and performs site specific performance, performance installations, walking pieces, and dance-theater. These intuitively driven works are created in collaboration with dynamic artists in the visual arts and performing arts, and in geospatial technologies. Her work has been performed internationally (Japan, Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico, United Kingdom) and nationally in visually inspiring sites, theaters, and galleries.

Prior to her dual rural and urban living in up and downstate New York, since 1988 Angier has created dance-theater works, performed, and taught in New York City. In 1995, she founded Chase Dance Theater, a company comprised of dancers, actors, writers, musicians, and visual artists with whom she collaborated to create innovative works. Her CDT dances have been performed nationally and reviewed as “intelligent entertainment”, “a comic romp” and “fine storytelling” by the New York Times and The Dance Insider. Her signature work, “Lemons for Loveliness”, was included in The Dance Insider’s top fifty dance works. She still recreates these works for other dance companies. Angier also toured nationally as a performer with Senta Driver’s dance company Harry, and has danced with a variety of New York pick-up dance companies.

Angier is a Professor of Dance and Director of the Dance Program at Alfred University since 2002. Her other university teaching experience includes being an Assistant Professor at Columbia College and Appalachian State University, and a guest artist or lecturer at the Universidad Francisco Marriquin in Guatemala, University of Washington, Texas Womans' University, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Appalachian State University, Kenyon College, Columbia College, University of South Florida, Meredith College, and the University of Rochester. She was a Teaching Artist with the Lincoln Center Institute and The Joyce Theater’s Aesthetic Education Programs, and a movement instructor at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. She is the co-founder along with Jennifer Salk of the Green Mountain Dance Teachers Retreat in Woodstock Vermont and received her MFA in choreography from The Ohio State University and her BA in dance from UCLA.
