Peter Pucci was born and raised in Baltimore. He graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts with a BFA. For nine years he was a member of Pilobolus Dance Theatre, where he served as principal dancer, co-choreographer, and rehearsal director. While with Pilobolus, Peter toured and taught worldwide, made several film and television appearances, performed on Broadway, collaborated on many Pilobolus pieces, and presented his own works on Pilobolus programs.

Pucci has worked for the last 20 years as Choreographer/Movement Director with extensive credits in theater, ballet, modern dance, opera, fashion, and dance education. Recent theatrical productions include: Master Harold and the Boys directed by Athol Fugard at the Signature Theatre; Incognito, directed by Doug Hughes Off Broadway at the Manhattan Theater Club; Midsummer Night's Dream directed by Gregory Boyd at The Alley Theater in Houston; Desire, directed by Michael Wilson Off Broadway at 59E59; One Man, Two Guvnors, directed by Gregory Boyd at The Alley Theater and Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Ethan McSweeney at The Shakespeare Company in Washington, DC.

Dance company commissions include the world premiere of Dream On By with music by Paul Simon for the State Street Ballet in California, PUCCI:SPORT for the New Mexico Ballet, and new ballets for Dance Theater of Harlem and the Joffrey Ballet Ensemble in New York City. Pucci is currently working on a new NEA funded production, Baltimore Stories, with the Community College of Baltimore County, where he will create a new group work for 60 local dancers.

Pucci has taught extensively for all levels of dancers; high school to college to professionals, including teaching at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City and has been a guest artist at Juilliard School of Drama in NYC. Pucci is also a Guest Moderator and Programmer for the Dance On Film Series at Jacob Burns Film Center

Pucci has also directed and choreographed for his own company, Peter Pucci Plus Dancers, which has performed in New York City, including six appearances at The Joyce Theater, and has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe. The company has twice been presented on public television by KRMA-TV Denver, One Night Only and Peter Pucci: Curtain Time. The second program has been rebroadcast nationwide on PBS. PP+ had its Broadway premiere at The New Victory Theater. In addition to creating numerous ballets in the US Pucci has choreographed over 50 repertory works for PP+.

One of Pucci's greatest strengths as a choreographer is his ability to spark an interest in dance among diverse audiences. His work is imbued with a sense of athleticism and humor that, combined with a keen and thoughtful vision and a true integration of music and dance, makes his work appeal to a wide range of ages and backgrounds - both for dance novices and dance aficionados.

Pucci was honored as the first recipient of the Samuel H. Scripps Humphrey/Weidman/Limon Fellowship, a choreographic commission awarded by the American Dance Festival. Pucci is also the winner of an Absolute Joffrey Award for Choreography and two Choo-San Goh Awards for Choreography. Pucci was a Drama Desk Award Nominee for Outstanding Choreography and a Lucille Lortel Awardee for Outstanding Choreographer for his work on Queens Boulevard. Pucci has received the Westchester Artist of the Year Award from ArtsWestchester. Pucci also received a Drama Desk Award for his work on The Orphans' Home Cycle.
