Master Dance Teacher & Choreographer
Temria Airmet holds her MFA in Dance from California State University Long Beach (2019) and her BFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah (2009). She is the Artistic Director and creator of the project-based dance company, Temria Dance Haus. She was the Co/Creator and Artistic Director of Myriad Dance Company from 2015-2017. Airmet has performed professionally with Tipsy Point Projects, Brine Arts, Arts of Chaos, Transfusion Hype, and Voodoo Productions. She has taught with Ballet West, Millennium Dance Complex, The University of Utah’s Tanner Dance, and other studios throughout the Salt Lake Valley and Los Angeles. Airmet currently teaches in higher education with Oxnard College and in studio with Top-Billing Entertainment. Airmet’s research and choreography celebrates diversity through politically-charged contemporary dance. She sees a country divided by social injustices and she is curious as to where the common ground lives. It is within this space that Airmet takes on complex ideas and turns them into artistic expression. With all her work, she intends to bring clarity to a complicated world and beauty to a disturbing climate. Temria knows art as a means to better understand the human experience and she does everything she can to support her fellow artists and grow the voice of the dance community from a local to global scale.
