Tehillah Joy Hartmann has been dancing professionally in Houston, TX since 2014 and is a founding member of Open Dance Project under the artistic direction of Annie Arnoult. She has performed in works by Randall Flinn, Jennifer Mabus, and other local Houston choreographers, as well as works by Lucinda Childs, Dianne McIntyre, and Amy Chavasse in Ann Arbor, MI.

Tehillah’s choreographic work has been presented in Houston by Open Dance Project, Dance Source Houston, the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center, the Houston Fringe Festival, and Suchu Dance, as well as Raw Pear in Austin, J. Lindsay Brown Dance in Chicago, and Performance Ark in Ann Arbor. Her work primarily investigates the relationship between faith and artistry, with a goal to bring reconciliation between body and spirit, heart and mind, soul and Divine.

Tehillah obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance at the University of Michigan where she received the Albert A. Stanley Medal for outstanding achievement. Post-graduation, she attended Bethel Church’s School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, California for one year before moving to Houston with her husband. She is now the Program Director at Hunter Dance Center as well as an instructor of dance.

You can find Tehillah recording improvised dance videos, reading a good book while taking a bath, and enjoying a cup of rooibos tea (with a little milk and honey).
