Marla A. Schulz
MARLA A. SCHULZ is a curious choreographer, director and software developer that has had the pleasure to work for various non-profits and performing arts institutions across the country. Her choreography challenges standardized notions of musical theatre etiquette; bending, breaking, and bursting through the boundaries between dance and scene. Her research has been presented at the Association for Theatre in Higher Education conference, as well as seen practical applications in shows such as Spring Awakening and Everyman at the University of Colorado Boulder in collaboration with directors Dr. Cecilia Pang and Dr. Will Lewis, respectively. As a software developer she works at PhET to create embodied experiences of STEM learning through interactive simulations. Marla received her BFA in musical theatre from Southern Illinois University, and her MFA in Dance from the University of Colorado Boulder.
