Andee Scott is an interdisciplinary artist, with a primary focus in dance.

As a choreographer, Scott’s areas of interest include technology, site-specific design, and aerial work. Her most recent major piece, Light, Interrupted, explored and exploited the relationship between light, technology, and dance. Her research is concerned with indicating a different relationship with space and light, where space is made tangible, and light is made visible. Her recent choreography, The Shape of White, involved dancers performing in and around trees, tunnels, and water, projecting images of birds on and in tunnels and snow, and Portrait was an aerial work in four parts, with a section that adapted the romantic ballet Les Sylphides to a wall. Currently, she is developing Silo/Solo, a full-length work to be performed and filmed in a silo, investigating ideas of frontiers and boundaries through movement, video, text, and light. Initial work on the project was developed during a residency at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in the fall of 2011, and she performed a video section, Walking The Line, as an invited guest at CORD's Meanings and Makings of Queer Dance Conference at The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor this past spring.

As a performer, she curated and performed Woman’s Work: Reconstructions of Self, a solo dance project in which she invited five international choreographers to create solos for and with her. Choreographers included Lenka Flory of Déjà Donné (Italy), Jeanine Durning (New York), Claudia Lavista of Delfos Contemporary Dance (Mexico), Lee Kyung-Eun of Lee K. Dance (South Korea), and Elizabeth Gillaspy (Texas). Woman’s Work premiered in the Fuse Box Festival in Austin, Texas and received numerous awards including Outstanding Dance Concert and Outstanding Dancer. She has subsequently toured works from the project in the United States, Italy, and Mexico. Professor Scott has been a member of Sharir+Bustamante Danceworks, Blue Lapis Light, and Michael Foley Dance, and has performed with David Dorfman Dance and AlienNation Co., under the direction of Johannes Birringer.

Scott has conducted residencies and taught masterclasses nationally and internationally and has been on faculty at the University of Texas at Austin and the American Dance Festival in Durham, N.C. At USF, she teaches modern technique, choreography, and BFA projects. She holds a Master of Fine Arts in dance and related arts from Texas Woman's University, and degrees in dance and German from The University of Texas at Austin.
