Prior to moving West, Amie Dowling was a guest artist in the
Five College Dance Department and taught at Amherst and Mount
Holyoke Colleges, as well as serving as the Graduate Advisor at
Smith College. Amie toured throughout the United States and Europe
with the Liz Lerman/Dance Exchange. After leaving the company she
was invited to Chiang Mai, Thailand to assist in the development of
a dance program and work with NGO's that assisted women
who were leaving the sex-trade industry. Upon returning to the U.S.
Amie founded the Dance Generators, a performance company whose
member's ages span six decades and became an
artist-in-residence at the Hampshire and Hampden County Jails where
she collaborated with people who are incarcerated on the creation
of evening-length original theater/dance pieces. She has been a
faculty member at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and The
American Dance Festival. She is a recipient of a choreography
fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
