Biography

After an extensive career in Europe, PASCAL REKOERT became a premier dancer and Associate Artistic Director with Jennifer Muller/ The Works, assisting Artistic Director Jennifer Muller with choreographies for New York City Opera, with performances at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall and with projects in Bolivia, Thailand, China, and Brazil. Since 2000, Rekoert has also produced various international festivals and performance series in New York City.

Rekoert’s choreographies have been presented in theaters in Switzerland, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United States. Rekoert’s commercial work includes PTT Dutch Royal Communications, BERENIK, Motorola, Levi’s, Dockers, L’Oreal Paris, New York Fashion Week, and various celebrity designers. Described as “magnetic and intricate” (the Dutch Volkskrant, 2001), Rekoert has also collaborated with various filmmakers, creating award-winning dance films, podcast dance film festivals, and hybrid film-dance performances.

As a Lincoln Center Scholar who finished his master’s degree in an inaugural partnership program between Lincoln Center Education
and CUNY Hunter College, Rekoert helped revise the New York City Department of Education Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Dance. After teaching dance professionals for two decades, Rekoert became a full-time NYCDOE dance educator in 2015. As part of his doctoral studies at Columbia University, Teachers College, his research explores the correlations between masculinity and dance within the male adolescent population in urban neighborhoods.
