BIOGRAPHY

Celia Torrey was diagnosed with moderate to severe hearing loss at the age of three. Growing up in a very artistic family, she never let being hard of hearing stop her from falling in love with music and movement. Celia began her dance training at the age of three at D’Valda and Sirico Dance and Music Center in Fairfield, Connecticut. She later joined Brass City Ballet in Middlebury, Connecticut to study ballet and modern dance. At Brass City, Celia studied under Elizabeth Fisk and Christine Harris and performed in multiple ballet and modern dance works. Upon graduating in 2015, Celia began training at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee. At the Conservatory, she studied with teachers such as Adriana Suarez, Tai Jimenez, Marissa Parmenter, Kurt Douglas, and Brian McGinnis, and worked with many acclaimed choreographers such as Tommie Waheed Evans, Uri Sands, Darrell Moultrie, Roderick George, and Gianni Di Marco. Celia also performed in several student works and created and danced in a few short dance films. Celia graduated from The Boston Conservatory with a BFA in Contemporary Dance Performance in May of 2019. She is currently a freelance dancer and actor in New York City, most recently joining the contemporary dance company APDance in April 2023 and performing in "Haunted Soiree: A Macabre Cocktail Halloween Party" in October 2023.
