Jamie Ray Wright
FEATURED IN: Hard to Handel
Jamie Ray Wright (Choreographer) came to dance later than most. He was a drummer, punk rock musician, and music arranger, while still a student at Stanford University. He further continued his creative impulses as an advertising copywriter and marketing executive for almost 20 years – all the while, harboring an intense love of dance. After more than 20 years of watching dance from afar, he could stand it no longer and entered the studio for the first time. After intensively taking class seven days a week, a minimum of 3 hours per day, he evolved into a performer and then a maker of dances. Since 2000, Jamie has been creating dances for a variety of settings and in a variety of styles. He is the Artistic Director of The DanceWright Project, a contemporary ballet company. His work has been seen at the ODC Theater, the Cowell Theater, and Dance Mission in San Francisco.
