For the last decade, Lonnie Stanton has been committed to dance education with a strong somatic focus as well as a professional contemporary performance career. She graduated from the Boston Conservatory with a BFA in Dance. For 10 years, she was a core member of Prometheus Dance, one of Massachusetts' most established modern dance companies, both performing and teaching for the company.
Stanton has worked with Kinesis Project Dance Theatre in New York City, focusing solely on site specific performance. She has produced and structured movement for visual, film, and sound artists Neoscape (advertisement), Tamara Al- Mashouk, Silvi Naci, Moe Pope, Linda Tegg, and Toni Lester. Stanton currently performs with Peter DiMuro/ Public Displays of Motion and Jean Appolon Dance Expressions.
In addition to teaching at Harvard Dance Center, Stanton is on faculty at the School of Classical Ballet and Deborah Mason School of Dance. She also works to bring dance education into public schools through Notes in Motion, New York City Ballet, and Boston Ballet (ECI). She has taught a site-specific improvisation class through the Midday Movement Series, exploring dance in unconventional, often outdoor, spaces where a broad audience can be reached. She has also completed barre fitness training, and a 200 hour yoga certification through Yogaworks.
