About Angelisa Gillyard

I am a choreographer, director and photographer in Washington, DC.  My love of story-telling, dramatic action and humor fuels my photography style.  

I specialize in photographing live performance (including theatre and dance), special events and portraits.  My photos can be seen in numerous publications including the Washington Post, DC Metro Theatre Arts,  DC Theatre Scene and The Washington Times.

I have choreographed operas and musicals for Montgomery College, The Jaguar Players and the In Series including Once on This Island, Ain’t Misbehavin’, The Wiz, Purlie, Dreamgirls, and Abduction from the Seraglio, which was recognized as one of the “Best of  2013” for choreography by DC Metro Theatre Arts.

I have also directed productions and readings for Arena Stage, Studio Theater, The Kennedy Center, African Continuum Theatre Company, Active Cultures Theatre, In Series, The Inkwell, The Capitol Fringe Festival and the DC Black Theatre Festival.
