Jane Ellison


Jane Ellison is a dancer, teacher, and artist whose practice is based in embodied movement research and somatic practices. Since 1975, Ellison has participated in, organized, and led classes, workshops, and performances. Her cross-disciplinary work reflects and has been influenced by its origins and situation in the social and cultural milieu of Western Front. A twenty-year position on faculty at Langara College’s Studio 58 theatre school provided another platform for her investigation into the relationships between movement, art, performance, and lived experience.
