Lynn Peterson is Artistic Director of SYREN ModernDance, a New York City based company that she co-founded in 2003 alongside Kate St. Amand. The company has produced nine New York Seasons, created 19 dances, and has performed for thousands of audience members in the tri-state area as well as in Paris, France. SYREN has been presented at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Symphony Space, Dance Theater Workshop, and Cité Universitaire, among others. It has been supported by grants from NYC’s Department of Cultural Affairs, Queens Council on the Arts, Harkness Space Grants (92nd Street Y), residencies at DanceNOW/NYC’s Silo and DTW’s Outer/Space, and was commissioned by Purchase College. SYREN has collaborated with world-renowned musicians to bring over 20 performances to the public that feature dance with live music. Ms. Peterson went to New York from Indiana 15 years ago. Ms. Peterson received her early training from Jordan Academy of Dance, Indianapolis Ballet Theater, Hosanna Sacred Arts, and she is a graduate of SUNY Purchase. Creating SYREN in 2003 and working diligently to give back generous dance is unendingly satisfying. In addition to dancing in and/or creating the 19 pieces SYREN has shared with thousands of audience members; Ms. Peterson has enjoyed teaching at Purchase College, Mark Morris Dance Center, Yale University, Anderson University, The Hartt School, Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts, Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, The Ethel Walker School, Performing Arts Center of Connecticut, Jordan Academy of Dance, Broad Ripple High School, Dance Arts Studio & Center of Movement Studies; and she has choreographed for the acclaimed Off-Broadway theater company, Waterwell. www.syrendance.org
