lean_girlsMarlita Hill started dancing at age 15 with The Hush Company, an LA based dance ministry under the direction of Stacy and LaQuin Meadows. Hill went on to earn her BFA degree in Dance Performance with K-12 Certification from Towson University in Towson, MD. In March 2008, she published her book, “Dancers! Assume the Position,” which examines the WHAT, the WHY, and the IMPACT of the dancer’s ministry. In 2009, Hill co-founded the dance department at the Ramon C. Cortines School for the Visual and Performing Arts, in downtown Los Angeles, where she still teaches. She is the creator and curator of The Choreography Clinic (choreoclinic.com), a blog that houses dialogue among dance makers about making dance. Her choreography has been presented at venues including Towson Unv., Kennedy Center’s Stage (in collaboration with VT Dance), Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center (MD), and Carpenter Center Performing Arts.
