Elizabeth (Disharoon) Wright danced professionally in New York City for over a decade before relocating to Greenville, SC in 2015. She has appeared on the major stages of New York, including the Joyce Theater, City Center and the New York State Theater, and she has toured nationally and internationally to Italy, Hungary, Russia, Bolivia, Brazil, Thailand, and China.

Elizabeth was a principal dancer with the Isadora Duncan Dance Company, led by Lori Belilove, for over fifteen years. She also served as the company’s rehearsal assistant, regularly teaching company class as well as staging and coaching the company’s repertory of original Duncan choreographies and new works. As a fourth-generation Duncan dancer, Elizabeth now performs on a freelance basis with the Duncan Dance Project and Duncan Dance South. She attended the Isadora Duncan International Symposium in 2015 and was featured as a presenter in 2017 and 2019.

Elizabeth was also a senior member of Jennifer Muller/The Works for eight years, creating and performing signature roles in Aria, Bench, The White Room, and throughout the company’s wide repertory. She taught Muller Polarity Technique regularly for company class and the apprentice program, and assisted with coaching and rehearsal within the company and for outside workshops and master classes.

Although her focus is now on contemporary movement exploration, Elizabeth is a classically trained dancer, having completed the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus through the Advanced level and achieving Honors in her final exams. She is a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts and the Juilliard School. She has taught residencies at Randolph College, Mills College, Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp, The Ailey School, Steps on Broadway, and the Totts Gap Arts Institute.

Since moving to Greenville, Elizabeth’s choreography has been seen at Artisphere and the Gunter Theatre. She produced programs of Duncan repertory at the Kilgore-Lewis House in 2017 and at Zen in 2020. After teaching for three years at the Fine Arts Center, Elizabeth is now on faculty at the SC Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities as well as spearheading the dance program at Furman University.
