Edward Henkel worked for 35 years as a professional dancer, choreographer and teacher and for the past 15 years as Assistant Director of the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center until his recent promotion to Associate Director. Henkel danced in the companies of Merce Cunningham, Eliot Feld, Erick Hawkins, Jean Erdman’s Theater of the Open Eye and New York Theatre Ballet, where he was the resident choreographer. Edward Henkel's MovementTalks were imagined as an interactive experience and an ongoing narrative about the role of dance as a substantiate interfacing of mind, body and environment.
