Aviles danced with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and toured internationally with the company for eight years before forming his own dance company, Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre (AATT) in 1996. He has choreographed over two dozen dance works and his company has performed at Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors, Jacob’s Pillow, Central Park Summerstage, Symphony Space, Harlem Stage, Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College, Celebrate Brooklyn, Hostos Center for the Performing Arts and several other venues in NY, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Connecticut. He’s been awarded dance residencies at dozens of universities in the US and Italy.
In December 1998, he co-founded BAAD! - The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, a performance space that blazed a path for professional art and dance in the Bronx and has garnered local and national attention for its work. The New York Times crowned BAAD! “a funky and welcoming performance space” and Theater Journal has said, “they have created a space for art in an environment that seems antithetical to that act.” BAAD! is located at 2474 Westchester Square in the Westchester Square section of the Bronx.
