​​Sydnie L. Mosley​ is an artist-activist who is interested in creative work that is both artistically sound and socially aware. She is most satisfied when immersed in dance, fulfilling her perpetual desire to move, know more about movement, and see the positive impact of movement on the lives of others. Sydnie earned her MFA in Dance with an emphasis on Choreography from the University of Iowa, not long after she received her BA in Dance and Africana Studies from Barnard College at Columbia University. Sydnie’s creative and research interests lie at the intersections of modern dance, movement in the African Diaspora, spirituality, feminism, and literature.​

​​

​A versatile dancer, Sydnie performs modern dance professionally, most recently with ​INSPIRIT, a dance company, and Brooklyn Ballet. Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times writes of her performance in David Parker’s Nut/Cracked Redux, “I won’t soon forget… the woman who stood in the center of a sea of floor-bound bodies, allowing her arms to bloom up and open luxuriously in a gracious, centuries-old convention with radiant pride and pleasure.”

Her choreographic work seeks to actively engage audiences, and often reflects issues in black cultures and the experiences of women. Her evening length dance, The Window Sex Project, and its creative process, are a model for dance-activism. With it, she uses movement to respond to the sexual harassment of women in public places. ​​​Her dances have been performed extensively throughout New York City and in 2010, she was listed by TheRoot.com as one of twenty-five “Up and Coming: Young Minority Artists and Entrepreneurs.”​

​ In addition, Sydnie is a dance educator who specializes in teaching modern, jazz and West African dance, amongst other styles.  She teaches babies (really!), K-12, undergraduates, non-dancers and professionals alike, with the motto: if you can move, you can dance!

While dancing, choreographing and teaching are​ Sydnie’s most immediate professional ventures, her skills extend beyond the creative. She is a writer and researcher who earned honors for her Barnard College senior thesis, “​Dancing Black Christianity: Revealing African American and Ghanaian Cultural Identity through Movement in Christian Worship.” Her most recent published article was in the June 2011 issue of Dance Magazine, “Teacher’s Wisdom: Djoniba Mouflet.” She is also an advocate for dance serving on the Dance/NYC Junior Committee which represents the interests of dance professionals in New York City ages 21-30.​​​
