Malcolm Shute is a dance artist. His performing career began in Washington D.C. with Nancy Havlik's Dance Performance Group and Jane Franklin Dance. In 2006, he completed his Master of Fine Arts in Dance with a concentration in choreography and founded Human Landscape Dance to showcase his artistic vision. Shute is fascinated by relationships between people and the environments we inhabit. The performers of Human Landscape Dance appear in a variety of spaces: lawns, stairwells, and walls, as well as the stage. Shute extends his understanding of movement craft by teaching. He gives classes at schools and studios across the Baltimore-Washington region, including the Towson University B.F.A. Dance Program. Also in 2006, Shute earned certification in movement analysis through the Laban/Bartenieff Insitutute of Movement Studies. This work has expanded his awareness of movement as a healing path. He conducts one-on-one movement therapy sessions. Shute is also a writer. He contributes articles in dance education and theory.
