Wendy Clinard is the Artistic Director of Clinard Dance, aninterdisciplinary dance company founded in 1999. She is pioneering a unique approach to contemporary and American-style flamenco, created by a community of artists drawn from a diverse range of disciplines and cultural backgrounds.

Their productions are developed over several years of research and subsequent artistic reconfiguration. Her work has been described as “physically bold excursions animated by a fierce intelligence”. Clinard’s choreographies have toured nationally and internationally in India, Syria and China. Clinard just concluded a yearlong choreography project in Pune, India funded through the MacArthur Foundation as well as premiered new works with Chicago Sinfonietta in the fall 2015. The company has just returned from Beijing China where they presented their original work, Chicago’s Watershed: A 156-Mile Choreography, dance set to Stravinsky’s Rite Of Spring for four hands by the EStrella Duo’s piano alongside video-projected ink work of the river by Dmitry Samarov.Clinard has been an invited choreographer to Jacob’s Pillow and The Birmingham Royal Ballet.
