“Ms. Liviakis is so in tune with modernism and is such a cosmopolitan creature.”
Caroline Liviakis has always held a clear vision for herself in dance: that of a creator. Liviakis is a creator who brings large-scale productions to life, blending dance with a multitude of art forms and mixing concert and commercial styles.
She began her journey as the Founder and Executive Artistic Director of the Caroline Liviakis Dance Company (CLDC), choreographing and producing live performances and audience interactive experiences. Now she brings her creative visions to digital form as a choreographer and director of film, music videos, and commercials.
Liviakis has been featured in: MovieMaker Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Marin Independent Journal, Skyline View, The Ark, BayAreaDanceWatch, backstage.com, and SF/ARTS Magazine.
Her evening-length debut show, There’s A New Kid In Town, was selected as a ‘Critic’s Pick’ for the San Francisco Chronicle. Her debut film, Better Than You Doin You (don’t be mad), won the award of ‘Best Dance Film’ at the Hollywood New Director’s Film Festival and was a nominee for ‘Best New Media’ for the 2019 NewFilmmakers Los Angeles ‘Best Of’ Awards.
Liviakis has taught film and dance at: St. Mary’s College of California, Napa Valley College, Skyline College, College of Marin, and Mills College.
She has written the screenplays for two feature film dance-musicals: Welcome To My Runway and Alternative Chick. She is currently in the production process for her next short film.
