Most recently, she is the founder of Making Moves: The Festival, premiering in November 2022. MM:TF brings local performance makers together with a master of the craft for a 5-day workshop and performance festival. 
A native of Kansas City, Jeramy earned her B.F.A. at Stephens College and her M.F.A. at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. In NYC, she danced with many, but most closely with Stephan Koplowitz, Mary Seidman, Kaoru Ikeda, and Stanley Love. Her zeitgeist moment was as a reperformer in The Artist is Present, MoMA’s epic retrospective of the work of Marina Abramovitz. 
In DC, she worked with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange and Art-O-Matic. As Art-O-Matic’s first Dance Facilitator, she helped form a multi-disciplinary, non-juried art show that included more than 700 visual artists, 40 performance groups and 70 bands. While in DC, she also created and produced her first dance festival, On the Edge: Downtown Festival of Modern Dance. 
She is excited about the growing KC dance community and honored to be part of Making Moves.
