About The Company

RUTH HOWARD grew up dancing and enjoying the sun in Jacksonville, Florida, USA.  At fifteen she was invited to train full time with The Joffrey Ballet School in New York City.  She studied on full scholarship for three years and was a pioneer member of Joffrey’s Touring Company in 2011. Upon being accepted into The Juilliard School she had the distinct pleasure of performing the works of José Limón, William Forsythe, Twyla Tharp, Merce Cunningham, Larry Keigwin, and Jiri Porkorny as well as choreographing her own work which received Choreographic Honors. She made her professional debut at the Joyce Theatre in October 2014 in Lar Lubovitch’s Artemis in Athens while still attending Juilliard. Upon graduation with her BFA in Dance, Ruth joined the Lar Lubovtich Company and performed in multiple works. Ruth then moved to London to study with choreographer and teacher Kerry Nichols. Upon returning to NYC Ruth has worked with Shannon Gillen of Vim Vigor, Cornfield Dance, and Janis Brenner & Dancers as well as independent choreographers in NYC. She is currently performing in Sleep No More in New York.
