Kora Radella is the choreographer and co-artistic director of BOOMERANG and Double-Edge Dance. Noted for her use of “awkward grace,” Radella researches being on the edge of control, pushing both physical and psychological boundaries. Radella received a 2014 Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award and was a 2016 recipient of a Yaddo artist residency. Her primary teaching interests include contemporary dance technique she calls “Riding Resilience,” improvisation, and choreography.  Radella is an Assistant Professor of Dance at Kenyon College and a certified yoga teacher.
