Elsie Management


Laura Colby established Elsie Management in 1995 – and is delighted to be celebrating Elsie’s 20th anniversary this season. Elsie represents a global roster of dance, theater, world music, special projects, and outdoor spectacle, including the world-renowned Australia’s Strange Fruit, the venerable Limón Dance Company, and 2015 Doris Duke artist awardee choreographer/performer Ann Carlson. Currently serving on the board of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, Colby served as the President of NAPAMA (2007 & 2008, North American Performing Arts Managers and Agents), on the board of Dance/USA, and was the founding Chair of the Dance/USA Agents Council. Since forming Elsie, Colby has represented over twenty-five performing arts touring companies from five continents, coordinating tours to over two hundred global venues. A frequently invited speaker for panels, workshops, and educational sessions, Colby began her arts administration career as company manager for several independent contemporary choreographers. She received her BFA in dance from The Juilliard School.
