Pete Litwinowicz


Pete Litwinowicz moved to the Bay Area in 1987 and immediately found outlets for his dance "habit," taking classes and being influenced by Limon, Cunningham, classical ballet, and Luigi techniques. His style mixes lyricism and softness with the seemingly disparate qualities of power and physicality. His most influential mentor was Cheryl Chaddick, the artistic director of Company Chaddick, for whom he danced for 11 years. Pete started creating his own works in 1993 and has shown his works at the ODC Theater, UC Santa Cruz, Dance Visions, Foothill College and various other venues around the Bay Area.

Pete has served on the faculty at San Francisco Dance Center and at Western Ballet, among several other schools. In his other job, Pete is a visual effects software developer and sometime artist for the motion picture and video industries, and has won several awards including an Academy Award©; an Ars Electronica Golden Nica (Austria); an Imagina Award (Monaco) for Best Visual Effects and Visual Innovation.
