About Moses Pendleton

Moses Pendleton has been one of America's most innova­tive and widely performed choreographers and directors for over 40 years.  A co-founder of the ground-breaking Pilobolus Dance Theater in 1971, he formed his own company, MOMIX, in 1980. Mr. Pendleton has also worked extensively in film, TV and opera and as a choreographer for ballet companies and special events.

Mr. Pendleton was born and raised on a dairy farm in Northern Vermont. His earliest experi­ences as a showman came from exhibiting his family's dairy cows at the Caledonian County Fair. He received his BA in English Literature from Dartmouth College in 1971. Pilobolus began touring immediately and the group shot to fame in the1970s, performing on Broadway under the sponsorship of Pierre Cardin, touring inter­nationally, and appearing in PBS's Dance in America and Great Performances series.
