Lynn Panting

Lynn Panting is a local dancer and choreographer who has been creating innovative dance works for the past eight years. In 2013, she was shortlisted for the Newfoundland and Labrador Art Council’s Arts Educator of the Year Award. Panting has been featured in a number of Neighbourhood Dance Works productions including the Festival of New Dance. Panting has also created work for Sound Symposium and Wonderbolt as well as self-producing her own shows which bring her vibrant work front and centre with new audiences. Panting is known for creating dances that appeal to a wide audience and she often works with artists from other disciplines to generate a theatrical yet lyrical blend of choreography. Her work is at time humorous, heartfelt, bold and always original.

Panting is deeply committed to the growth of creativity and self-confidence through movement and likes to collaborate with individuals outside of the dance community. Panting holds a Master of Arts in Philosophy from Memorial University as well as a Master of Humanities concentrating in performance, dance and the body.
