Bio:

  • Terri Ayanna Wright hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana by way of Houston, Texas, and has called New York City her home since 2011. She is an honors graduate of the Ailey/Fordham BFA Program, with a major in dance and minor in computer science. Immediately after graduating, Ms. Wright toured internationally as a company member with Ailey II, where she was completely enthralled by the wide-range of live production teams, theaters, and audiences from city to city. She has since been granted opportunities to choreograph and teach all over the world, most notably as an Ailey Extension Instructor in Italy for Orsalina28’s Summer Intensive. After performing with Carolyn Dorfman Dance for two seasons, Ms. Wright joined The Met Opera as an ensemble dancer in Porgy & Bess, choreographed by Camille A. Brown. Through this experience, she began exploring the many facets of live production beyond the performance act itself. She is a recent honors graduate of Parsons with an MFA in Design & Technology, which has allowed her to expand her storytelling capabilities through the marriage of dance, digital video, and visual effects.
