Trey McIntyre
Choreographer, Chasing Squirrel

One of the most sought-after choreographers and artists working today, Trey McIntyre is the man behind the mission—and the movement—that is Trey McIntyre Project. McIntyre’s inventive combination of the ballet lexicon, his connection to music, and an unflinching examination of the human condition has resulted in exceptional artistry that has garnered him a number of awards and much acclaim. McIntyre was named a United States Artists Wynn Fellow, he received the Gold Medal of Lifetime Achievement from the National Society of Arts and Letters, two choreographic fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and a Choo-San Goh Award for Choreography. TheLos Angeles Times has said of McIntyre, “There is indeed such a thing as genuine 21st century ballet, and it belongs more to this guy from Wichita than any of the over-hyped pretenders from England, France or Russia. McIntyre rocks, McIntyre rules. Everyone else can just get in line.” 
 
Trey McIntyre has served as choreographic associate for Houston Ballet (1989–2008) and resident choreographer for Oregon Ballet Theatre, Ballet Memphis, and The Washington Ballet. He has created a canon of works for some of the premier dance companies in the world, including American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Moscow Ballet Theatre, State Ballet of (Republic of) Georgia, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Ballet de Santiago (Chile), Aspen/Santa Fe Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, Philadanco, Sacramento Ballet, Miami City Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet, Kansas City Ballet, and Smuin Ballet.
 
While he continues to create extraordinary ballets, McIntyre’s far-reaching vision has evolved to an exploration of other genres of art including literature, photography and film. His tireless drive and prolific genius have positioned McIntyre among the most notable American artists of the 21st century.
