Tim Glenn, former member of the Nikolais & Murray Louis Dance Company, is Associate Professor in the School of Dance at Florida State University. His primary interests in dance technology include digital media, videodance, telematics, and multimedia theater. His work involves many media-related projects, among them producing web-based resources (ChoreoVideo.com & DanceDocumentation.com) for applying performance techniques to camerawork, and designing mediated environments in which dancers interact in real-time via Internet2 from distant locations. He has worked as videographer for the Paul Taylor Dance Company's Repertory Preservation Project since 2003 and has documented 27 masterworks by Taylor. He has been an invited presenter for the National Association of Schools of Dance and serves as consultant for a number of dance organizations. Influenced by his mentor, Alwin Nikolais, Glenn enjoys “total theater” design, including costume design and construction. In 2008, Glenn directed and produced a restaging and film project based on his 1996 work, Embodiments of Silence, and in 2005 premiered Aqueous Myth: Tales of a Water Planet, a full evening of dance and technology commissioned by the National Center for Choreography. Glenn has been the curator of Dance on Camera - Tallahassee, an international screening of dance films, and from 2001-2005 served as Technology Director for the National Center for Choreography at FSU. Glenn teaches courses in dance technology including dance video and projection design, and also offers modern dance technique and repertory courses primarily influenced by the Nikolais/Louis philosophy and method of performance. Glenn received his M.F.A. in Dance from The Ohio State University where, after earning his degree, he worked for the Department of Dance and the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design. He is an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison (B.S. Dance & B.S. InterArts and Technology) where he taught modern dance and improvisation. Prior to membership in the Nikolais Company, Tim performed with the Melrose Motion Company in Madison, WI, directed by former Nikolais dancer Claudia Melrose. Choreographing since 1987, Glenn’s repertoire has been performed internationally in The Netherlands and Japan, as well as in numerous national venues. He is the recipient of the Gene Kelly Award for the Performing Arts presented by the National Alliance for Excellence and the Leo Award for Choreography from the Jazz Dance World Congress.
