Genna Moroni is an L.A. native. She attended LACHSA and graduated magna cum laude from UCLA in 2012. She began her professional career in 2010 performing Barak Marshall’s work with BODYTRAFFIC and has continued to work as his assistant ever since. From 2012-2019, Genna was a founding member of Ate9 Dance Company. She performed at venues such as Jacob’s Pillow, White Bird Dance, American Dance Festival, Vishneva Fest (Moscow), The Joyce Theater and The Wallis Theater and had the opportunity to work with Guy Shomroni/Yaniv Abraham, Shahar Binyamini and Tom Weinberger in developing new works.
Moving forward in her career, Genna is translating her concert dance experience as she dives into working in commercial film/stage. The roster of artists she has choreographed for/assisted includes HAIM, Dua Lipa, One Republic, Dominic Fike, Marina, Leven Kali/Smino/Topaz Jonez, Zella Day, Francisca Valenzuela, Empress Of, Marian Hill, Jarina De Marco and others. She has been fortunate to perform in videos for many of the listed above, as well as Perfume Genius, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sam Fischer and NIKI.
As of 2020, eager to keep her connection to the concert dance stage, Genna has been fortunate to present work at R.E.D.C.A.T. in LA, Congress: Legalize Dance and was selected for the 2020 To the Sea: Dance Concerts at the Pier (presented by Jacob Jonas the Company postponed due to COVID). In 2020, Ballet Florida premiered her new work “tethered dreams” at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach and she received a commission to stage her work “a space devoid of matter” on LA Contemporary Dance Company. Most recently, she is in the studio preparing for her December premiere at R.E.D.C.A.T. NOWFEST 2020.
Outside of choreographing and performing, Genna is a certified Gaga teacher, part-time supplemental faculty member at USC Kaufman and a Dance Church® Teacher. She loves awakening the joy and potential of movement for both dancers/non-dancers!
