Susan Marshall (born October 17, 1958) is an American choreographer and dancer. She formed the dance collective Susan Marshall & Company in 1982, working initially with dancers Arthur Armijo, David Dorfman, Jackie Goodrich, and David Landis.

Starting at Emanu-El Midtown YM-YWHA and PS 122, Susan Marshall & Company moved to Dance Theater Workshop in New York City for two- and three-week seasons in 1986 and 1987 respectively, during the second one of which her dance Kiss was performed, which remains in repertory with other groups. The company began touring in 1987, and the next year Brooklyn Academy of Musicmarker commissioned Interior with Seven Figures for its Next Wave Festival. An association with composer Philip Glass began in 1994 when Marshall used his music for a dance Fields of View, and in 1996 she collaborated with him on his dance-opera Les Enfants Terribles. Susan Marshall & Company has performed at the Edinburgh International Festival, the Spoleto Festival, Vienna Tanz, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Marshall has created dances for the Lyon Opera Ballet, the Frankfurt Ballet, the Boston Ballet, and Montreal Danse.

In her artistic statement, Marshall states,

My dances reflect my interest in all kinds of human movement and the way in which much of the information that we share with each other about ourselves in our daily lives is not expressed through words but revealed through subtle gestures and physical communications -- all of which we understand with great speed and emotion. I am fascinated by this world of unacknowledged knowledge that runs parallel to our world of articulated thoughts and actions. It is a world filled with undeniable truths immersed in great mystery...
In making my dances, I often draw directly from movements found in our daily lives: an embrace, a touch, a turn of the head, simple walking and running. This familiar vocabulary has the ability to communicate swiftly and clearly. I am interested in using such movements in their natural form, and not in a stylized way, because I believe that, unadorned, these movements can communicate the depth of our lives.

In 2000, Marshall was the recipient of a MacArthur "Genius" Award.
