An American choreographer born in Japan, Maureen Fleming has gained international recognition for her singular form of multi-media performance. After extensive study in Japan with Kazuo Ohno, Ms. Fleming went on to perform with his son, Yoshito Ohno, and to tour internationally with performance artist and choreographer Min Tanaka. She continued her training in the United States as a scholarship student under the Cecchetti master Margaret Craske. In 1984, Fleming became an artist-in-residence at La MaMa ETC in New York, and since 1994 has conducted annual workshops at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.
