Liz Dibble

Visiting Professor
Full-Time Faculty


Liz Dibble began her choreographic career creating raucous improvisations performed for her adoring menagerie of stuffed animals. 

Her formal dance training began as a scholarship student at the San Francisco Ballet School where she studied with Irina Jacobson, Christine Bering, and performed works by Helgi Tomasson. Liz discovered a fascination with Contemporary Dance during her undergraduate studies at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University. She still finds great value and excitement in exploring the best of classical and contemporary dance techniques. 

Ms. Dibble holds an MFA in dance performance from the prestigious Purchase College Conservatory of Dance where she was the 2010 MFA Excellence Award recipient. Following graduation, Liz performed with Trio Dance Collective and other contemporary dance project based works in New York City. She taught at the Peridance Capezio Center and Ballet Hispanico as well as other private studios.  

Liz finds great joy in telling stories of humanity and hope through dance. Her choreography has been presented at DNA, The Mark Morris Dance Center, White Wave SoloDuo Festival, Sheridan College, BYU Contemporary Dance Theater, Breaking Ground Festival, The Utah Dance Film Festival, and at the Rose Wagner Theater as part of the RDT Link Series.  

You can often find Liz baking cakes, hiking with her husband, or having wild dance parties with her three adorable children.  

Research Interests: Abstract narrative as it pertains to contemporary choreography. Gaga movement language and how it relates to both ballet and contemporary technique.
