Rebekah Windmiller, dancer and choreographer, has been making work since 1982. From her beginnings in dance, to more recent forays into voice and theater, Windmiller continues to explore a range of movement-based performance possibilities.  
 
Whistleblower, premiered at the Kitchen in 1993, explored text, story and movement.  In Room Under the Roof, Windmiller incorporated everyday objects into a dance performed in her bedroom, later setting the piece on The Kitchen’s stage.  Other works have been seen at The Knitting Factory, Spoke-the-Hub, Movement Research at Judson Church, The Construction Company, The Merce Cunningham Studio, Danspace Project, University Settlement, the Ohio Dance Festival, Cleveland Performance Art Festival, and the Minnesota Fringe Festival. 
 
Windmiller first received support with a full-tuition talent scholarship at Ohio University, and choreography and performance awards from the American College Dance Festival. Since then, supporting organizations include the Joyce-Mertz Gilmore Foundation, an Emerging Choreographers Space Grant with The Field where she served as a “Fieldwork” facilitator, and a 1st place award in Spoke-the-Hub’s  Winter Follies Series. 
 
In addition to stage performances, Windmiller has created works in parks, on piers, and for the camera. Everyday Dance engaged strangers in unexpected movement encounters in NYC parks, and the series of video-taped Dance Diaries was posted on youtube in 2009. In addition to choreography, Windmiller collaborates and performs with Sally Silvers. Currently, she is creating Beholden, a solo to be presented at the Cora Studio Theater in Brooklyn. 
 
She is a resident choreographer with Dance Under Construction where she continues to perform and create new dances.
