Born in Seattle, Washington, Miranda Dahl now lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she graduated in May 2018 from Pratt Institute, with a BFA in printmaking and a minor in cultural studies. Dahl participated in an exchange program in London where she attended Central Saint Martins to study performance design. It was here that she collaborated closely with Chandler and Graham and helped to establish jotdown as a multi-media performance company. A resident of Athens, GA for fourteen years, Dahl trained intensely in contemporary, jazz, ballet, and hip hop dance at Dancefx, a not-for-profit studio. Upon becoming an instructor for both youth and adult classes, she choreographed pieces for Dancefx Concert Dance Company, the FX Performance Companies, and Xtensity. Dahl has attended several competitions and conventions such as Bravo!, Open Call, and The Pulse On Tour, where her choreography received platinum scores. During the summer of 2009, she studied at the American Dance Festival School in Durham, North Carolina, training with choreographers from companies such as Shen Wei Dance Arts and The Forsythe Company. Her work often considers the link between fine art and performance—how they combine to inform and develop each other.
