Jennifer Lin | Dance

Jennifer Lin is a classically trained contemporary American dancemaker, performer, and teaching artist of European and Korean descent. Raised in the Midwest, she earned a Bachelor’s degree from the Boston Conservatory, trained at the Graham School and Clark Center in Manhattan, and completed a three-year Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Hawai’i Manoa.

Lin's mission is to investigate the nature of art and dance in the human experience and inspire creative inquiry in others. Intersecting dance, culture, and identity, her artistic work explores interstitial spaces between tradition and modernity, form and expression, and theory and practice. Lin's dances range from abstract form and expression to site specific and video dance and story telling.

Nationally Lin has presented original work in the Hawaiian Islands at the Asia Pacific Dance Festival, Art Mania, and Volcanoes Art Center. In New Hampshire, as Artist-in-Residence at Granite State Ballet and guest artist at the Portsmouth Arts Festival, she presented dances inspired by the poetry of Theodore Roethke, Sylvia Plath, Adrienne Rich, and Marge Piercy. In the Boston area, Lin has made dances for Lady BOS Productions, Pao Arts Center, Mount Auburn, Dance Complex, Boston Conservatory, Linden Tree Productions, and Dance for World Community. In addition to classical ballet and modern dance idioms, Lin has studied and researched traditional Korean dance and performed and taught abroad in South Korea and China.
