Caroline “Collo” O’Brien is a freelance dance artist living in Philadelphia. Since 2007 Collo has danced for numerous artists and companies within the city and abroad, including Olive Prince Dance, Danse4nia Repertory Ensemble, Rebekah Rickards, and Arts Fission Dance Company. Caroline has also produced and curated independent performances over the last six years, donating profits to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, and the Myron "Mike" Moss Memorial Fund. The tragic passing of Dr. Moss birthed a beautiful partnership between Caroline and fellow Drexel graduate Steve Davit; forming Everything Is Improv. Facilitating monthly jam sessions for artists of all mediums, Collo and Steve emphasize the importance of improvisation practices for the creative being; 'Improv to Improve'. Caroline supports the power of collaborative spaces, and strives to incorporate authenticity, reflection, and growth within her creative work and practice. Each body has a unique voice that speaks profoundly when it speaks its own language. Caroline has worked within the healthcare field as a CPhT for eleven years. Currently she works full-time at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, and serves on the Educational Steering Committee through the national organization ASHP.
