Lüttringhaus was born and grew up in Berlin, Germany, where she lived until the age of 23 before moving to the US to attend the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. She received a BFA in Choreography and Modern Dance in 1998 from UNCSA and an MA/MFA in Scenic Design and Scenography from the Teschnische Universität Berlin in 2013. She is a recipient of the ‘North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship in Choreography’ (’06) and a ‘Verein Deutscher Ingenieure award for outstanding achievements in Scene Design’ (’14).
Lüttringhaus currently leads a semi nomadic life, splitting her time between the US and Berlin, Germany, while working wherever opportunities take her. She is a freelance designer, choreographer and educator at theatres and universities across Europe and the US. Since 1999 she has been the artistic and executive director of ALBAN ELVED DANCE COMPANY and founded a number of organizations and regular events including the SARUS Festival for Site-specific & Experimental Art (www.sarusfestival.org) the MoRe (Movement Research) Summer School and Festival (www.movement-research.org), Dynamic Body Massage Therapy and Movement Center (www.dynamic-body.org), and the Dynamic Body Educational Series.
She currently teaches ‘BII-the Body’s Intrinsic Intelligence’ and ‘DYNAMIC BODYWORK’ in the Movement Science major of the Dance Department at Salem College, and also offers those approaches as continuing education workshops for massage therapists and as regular workshops for movement enthusiasts of all backgrounds.
Lüttringhaus’ research in somatics and dance focuses on studying the human body in motion, primarily with the Axis Syllabus based on biomechanical, anatomical, and physical principles, and through her work as a massage therapist.
