“Ms. Liviakis is so in tune with modernism and is such a cosmopolitan creature.”
Following her completion of graduate school, Caroline Liviakis embarked on the vision she had for herself in dance: starting her own dance company. Both she and her sister were the company’s first dancers, performing at colleges and showcases around California and New York. In 2017, she officially founded the Caroline Liviakis Dance Company where she served as the Executive Artistic Director.
Liviakis has choreographed a half evening of work (Six Works In Progress) and an evening-length work (There’s A New Kid In Town). All performances were to completely sold out audiences.
Now as an independent artist, she has started her journey as a director, bringing her dance creations to life through film. In the past year and a half, she has directed, produced, and choreographed three short films: Better Than You Doin You (don’t be mad), INeasyOUTbreezy, and i know why the bright eye dies.
Liviakis has been featured by: MovieMaker Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Marin Independent Journal, Skyline View, The Ark, BayAreaDanceWatch, backstage.com, and SF/ARTS Magazine. There’s A New Kid In Town, was selected as a ‘Critic’s Pick’ for the San Francisco Chronicle. 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, Boys and Girls. She is also in the midst of writing her first children’s book and musical.
