Marlies Yearby

A modern/postmodern choreographer, Marlies Yearby is best known for her Tony-nominated choreographic contributions to Jonathan Larson’s Broadway hit Rent (1996), a reinterpretation of Puccini’s La Boheme made relevant for the AIDS era. As a teenager in the late 1970s in Oakland, California, Yearby was a professional disco dancer. In the 1980s, she trained in modern dance at San Jose State University, supplemented by classes in Limon technique with Aaron Osborne at New Performance Gallery in San Francisco. In addition to her work for musical theater, she is founder and co-artistic director of Movin’ Spirits Dance Theater.
