Keerati Jinakunwiphat - How It Happened; A.I.M Dancer & Choreographer, Dance Magazine’s Ones to Watch

Listen as Keerati Jinakunwiphat shares her journey becoming a professional choreographer and dancer, A.I.M. dancer/choreographer, named one of Dance Magazine's 25 choreographers to watch, and being the first Asian female choreographer to create for New York City Ballet and much much more.

The past few years have been particularly busy for Keerati, whose parallel careers as a dancer and choreographer essentially launched simultaneously. Shortly after graduating from SUNY Purchase with a BFA in dance in 2016, she became an apprentice with A.I.M by Kyle Abraham, joining the company full-time in 2018 and creating her first major commission, Big Rings, for her colleagues there a year later.

While continuing to dance with A.I.M, she has since made works for companies nationwide, including PARA.MAR Dance Theater, Houston Contemporary Dance Company, Whim W’Him, New Victory Dance, and more.

Born in Chicago, IL, Jinakunwiphat credits her Thai family’s support for her various endeavors as essential to where she is today.
