Like A Girl: Dare To Dream presents
Kelly Trager is a dancer, choreographer, professor, arts lawyer, writer, speaker, gallery owner, and design thinker. As a professional modern dancer, Kelly realized there was a need for attorneys who understood artists’ legal and business concerns and could help them understand the value of their creations and protect their intellectual property. She graduated from Brooklyn Law School and worked at New York’s Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts before founding her own firm- KKT Law- in 2010.
In 2017, Kelly co-founded Trager Contemporary art gallery to showcase distinctive artists and broaden the dialogue about culture and contemporary art. In addition to her practice and teaching roles at College of Charleston and Pratt Institute, Kelly dances and choreographs. Her latest project is Dance Around, combining creative placemaking and site-specific movement installations.
