Jocelyn Reyes is a contemporary/modern choreographer, performer and teaching artist based in San Francisco.
Reyes earned a B.A. in Dance and B.S. in Cognitive Science at the University of California, Los Angeles. Reyes began presenting choreographic works in venues around the Los Angeles area including Bootleg Theater, REDCAT Studio, Atwater Village Theater and Curtis Theater. In 2017, Reyes relocated to San Francisco where she founded her company, Reyes Dance. Since then, Reyes Dance has performed works in ODC Pilot, Festival of Latin American Contemporary Choreographers, West Wave Dance Festival, PUSHFest, LEVYSalon, MFDP Young Choreographer’s Forum, SAFEHouse RAW, and other festivals, and has presented/selfproduced evening length works at SAFEHouse Arts and Joe Goode Annex.
As a performer, Reyes has danced in works by Daiane Lopes da Silva, Ana Maria Alvarez, Gracie Whyte, Shahar Binyamini, Janie Gieser, Cheng Chieh Yu and with Raisa Punkki and Tanya Chianese through ODC Sandbox Series. Reyes is also a teaching artist with Alonzo King LINES Community Programs, SF Performing Arts Workshop and SF Arts Education.
I aim to create original contemporary dance works that give audience members a window into disbelief in medicine, fanatical Catholicism, domestic violence, undocumented residence, and the otherwise good times that surround these commonplace trials and tribulations in Latin American households below the poverty line.
