Genna Moroni is an L.A. native. She attended LACHSA and graduated magna cum laude from UCLA in 2012. She began her professional career in 2010 performing Barak Marshall’s work with BODYTRAFFIC. Ever since, whenever possible she assists Marshall either staging or workshopping new works. From 2012-2019 Genna was a founding member of Ate9 Dance Company where she performed at venues such as Jacob’s Pillow, White Bird Dance, American Dance Festival, Vishneva Fest (Moscow), The Joyce Theater and The Wallis Theater. Additionally, Genna had the opportunity to work with Guy Shomroni/Yaniv Abraham, Shahar Binyamini and Tom Weinberger in developing new works with Ate9.
Moving forward in her career, Genna is translating her experience in concert dance as she dives into choreographing and performing for commercial film/stage. The roster of artists she has choreographed/assisted for includes HAIM, Dua Lipa, Leven Kali/Smino/Topaz Jonez, Zella Day, Francisca Valenzuela, Empress Of, Marian Hill, Jarina De Marco and others. She has been fortunate to perform in videos for many of the listed above, as well as Perfume Genius and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Continuing her connection to the concert dance stage, Genna has been fortunate to present work at R.E.D.C.A.T. in LA, Congress: Legalize Dance and at the 2020 To the Sea: Dance Concerts at the Pier (presented by Jacob Jonas the Company). In 2020, she received commissions from LACDC and Ballet Florida.
Outside of choreographing and performing, Genna is a certified Gaga teacher, part-time supplemental faculty member at USC Kaufman and Dance Church® Teacher. She loves awakening the joy and potential of movement to both dancers/non-dancers!
