Director Biography - Caleb Teicher

Director: Caleb Teicher & Nic Petry

Caleb Teicher is a NYC-based dancer and choreographer specializing in musically-driven dance traditions and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Teicher began their career as a founding member of Michelle Dorrance’s critically acclaimed tap dance company, Dorrance Dance, while also freelancing in contemporary dance (The Chase Brock Experience, The Bang Group), Lindy Hop (Syncopated City Dance Company), and musical theater (West Side Story International Tour and London).

As a solo performer and collaborator, Teicher is known for choreographic collaborations with diverse musical talents: world-champion beatboxer Chris Celiz, composer/pianist Conrad Tao; the National Symphony Orchestra, and indie rock legends Ben Folds and Regina Spektor.

In 2015, Caleb shifted their creative focus towards Caleb Teicher & Company, a creative home for incubating new concert dance works from Teicher’s unique perspective. Outside of company work, projects include choreographing Regina Spektor on Broadway, Sister Aimee (streaming on Hulu), and AJR’s “Bang” music video.

Caleb is the recipient of a 2019 New York City Center Choreographic Fellowship, two Bessie Awards, a 2019 Harkness Promise Award, the 2020 Gross Family Prize, and a 2019 NEFA National Dance Project Production Grant. Their work has been featured by The New York Times, NPR, Forbes, Vogue, Interview Magazine, on the cover of Dance Magazine and, most recently, on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Regina Spektor.

Caleb continues to engage with dance communities as a teacher for international tap, swing, and jazz dance festivals.

Nic Petry
Nic Petry believes in the volatile intermix of rigor and instinct.

He founded Dancing Camera in 2005 with a passion to unify his background in science with his career in art through movement. Nic developed the company and approach while performing internationally with the percussive dance brilliance of The Bang Group, of which he is a 15 year veteran.

He has a BA in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University and a MFA from the University of Illinois. He has danced in pointe shoes, nocturnally tracked ocelots in the Panamanian rainforest, hacked many cameras and discovered a beetle species.

He is an Emmy-nominated Director and Director of Photography.
