CoCo Loupe holds a BFA (USM) & MFA (OSU) in Dance/Choreography. In the past 25 years she has been an ADF student (1988, 1989 and 1992), an indie dance group dreamer, a pick-up performer and a university educator. Her work has been performed all over the place but not everywhere.

In 2006, her work “In The Clear” was presented at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC as part of the National College Dance Festival. In Columbus, OH she was a member of CAW: creative arts of women and was founder and co-operator of a dance/arts space in Columbus, OH called FEVERHEAD. She was also awarded an Individual Excellence Award for Choreography in 2012 by the Ohio Arts Council (OAC).

In 2013, CoCo moved back to the South and since then has created new works for LSMSA in Natchitoches, LA, the HUB Dance Collective and the USM Repertory Dance Company (RDC) in Hattiesburg, MS. She was a commissioned, collaborating artist/teacher, along with Peter Kyle, K.J. Holmes, Claire Porter and BeBe Miller, for Taking PLace Columbus in Columbus, OH, and she created a new student work for the ULL fall dance concerts in 2014 and 2015. She also co-produced and performed in two Ten Tiny Dances concerts and produced the BR Blender at the Manship Theatre in Baton Rouge, LA with Mina Estrada. She served as adjunct faculty at The University of Southern Mississippi in 2014-15 and as Dance Faculty at the Trollwood Performing Arts School in Summer of 2015.

CoCo taught modern dance technique at the 2016 Ballet Bon Temps Regional Dance Southwest Festival in Baton Rouge and technique and improvisation at the Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre’s 2016 Summer Workshop. Following that, in Fall 2016, CoCo made a new student work, taught classes and delivered artist talks at Denison University.

CoCo continues to live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she works her ass off at a grocery store, spends all free moments gazing at her Gertie Birdie, working out at a sweet gym, shopping for RV’s, dreaming about NM, and launching/executing new CKA: currently known as projects with Mina Estrada AKA Martha/Esther AKA her “yes and cosmic sister.”
