In the weeks ahead, we’ll be introducing the choreographers whose work will be presented in the upcoming Princeton Dance Festival through a series of short profiles …
LONI LANDON is an award winning dancer, choreographer, and movement consultant based in New York City. After training at the NYC High School for the Performing Arts, Juilliard, and The School at Jacob’s Pillow, Landon has choreographed and performed in Europe and the US, and has distinguished herself as a notable and highly sought-after member of the dance community. In 2010 she co-founded The Playground in New York City along with Gregory Dolbashian (a choreographer whose work was performed in the 2015 Princeton Collaborative Senior Thesis Show). The Playground is an initiative that makes it possible for artists to experiment and create work in an open space, and build relationships in the field.
Landon’s choreography has been performed at The Joyce Theater, Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out Series, Bryant Park, and the first annual Beach Sessions at Rockaway Beach, and her work has been commissioned by American Dance Institute, Ballet Austin, Ballet X, BODYTRAFFIC, Hubbard Street II, Keigwin + Company, LEVY DANCE, Marymount Manhattan College, Northwest Dance Project, SUNY Purchase, The Juilliard School, and Whim Whim.
