Lyndon Institute
An independent day and boarding school for grades 9 - 12 located in northeastern Vermont
Dancers at Lyndon Institute have the opportunity each semester to work with professionals in the dance field by taking classes and going to professional performances.  As a dance educator, I know it is imperative to provide relevant teaching moments and opportunities for students that I might not be able to provide them myself from my own professional work and teacher trainer.  So, I make sure to bring in professionals current in the dance world to help my students grow and learn about dance styles and techniques other than the traditional forms learned in our LI dance curriculum, make connections to learning occuring in their curriculum at LI, and see dance beyond the high school experience (college level as well as professional).

Some of the guest artists/residencies that occur/have occurred at LI include:
  • Former LI dancer and '06 graduate, now pro hip hop dancer, Steve Shannon
  • Tango Fusion Dance Company
  • Flock Dance Troupe
  • Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance Company

  • Joan Wiegers, Modern Dance Study and Choreography
  • Pilobolus Workshop (in collaboration through The Hopkins Center for the Arts)
  • Paula Rivera, Nutrition workshops
  • Barnet TradePost, workshops on healthful beings (body and mind)
  • Sarah Paquette, Peak Performance and Training for Dancers
