Latsky first received recognition as a celebrated principal dancer for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company (1987-1993). Her experience there profoundly influenced her style and her philosophy of dance as she developed a reputation in her own right as a choreographer for stage, theater, and film. Latsky toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe with her own company and as part of Goldhuber & Latsky (with former partner Lawrence Goldhuber) [1996-2000]. She headed the Movement Department at The School for Film and Television from 1998-2005, where she developed her teaching practice which was recently revitalized: MARS (mindful activation release study).
In 2001 she founded her own company, Heidi Latsky Dance (HLD), and in 2006, began an intensive period of creation with bi-lateral amputee, Lisa Bufano. This marked a significant shift of focus for HLD where the vision extended to include dynamic performers with disabilities.
