about us

Loni Landon Dance Project is a New York City-based contemporary dance company that creates and performs original works by artistic director Loni Landon.  LLDP is known for creating lush, innovative movement full of subtle detail and sophistication, and maintaining a highly charged emotional current throughout. Upholding to the integrity of the movement itself, LLDP's works search for honest reaction and expression while shedding the performance persona.
