Project Description

Jaime Frugé-Walne, a native Houstonian, is a choreographer, performer, and educator who creates interactive and co-creative performance experiences. Her choreography has been presented at CounterCurrent Festival’s Ten Tiny Dances, Houston’s Fringe Festival, and Sam Houston State University. She has had the pleasure of serving on Frenetic Theatre’s Artist Board where she produced her first evening length work titled Integration. Jaime fuses choreography, theatre, costume and production design to curate site-specific performances and immerse audiences and performers inside an intimate performance environment ripe with interaction and co-creation to promote social change. She holds a MFA in Dance from Sam Houston State University and BA in Theatre from the University of Southern California. She is a graduate of Houston’s High School for Performing and Visual Arts and trained at the Houston Ballet Academy and Joffrey Ballet School New York City. Jaime has worked with notable choreographers such as Bliss Kohlmeyer, Luis Fuente, Jesse Zarritt, Kira Blazek, Jane Weiner, Margot Marshal, John Brinkman, Janie Carothers, Dana Nicolay, and Jennifer Pontius. In addition to her own artistry, Jaime supports the dance community through development, public relations, and programming. She serves as Artist Liaison and Development for The Dance Gallery Festival, an international dance festival with programming in New York and Texas, and is the Director of Programming for NobleMotion Dance, a Houston based contemporary dance company critically acclaimed as “Houston’s Best Dance Company” by the Houston Press.
