Juel D. Lane

juel d laneCelebrated as one of the most gifted and innovative new voices in American dance, Juel D. Lane pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance through choreography that “strips labels and shows humanity.” Whether he examines political concepts, gender roles, or his own intimate experiences, Lane stays unapologetically true to his singular perspective. Lane’s clear vision is met by his extraordinary technical talent, resulting in ever-growing national acclaim that is helping to launch his career to new heights. Currently dancing with Bessie Award-winning Camille A. Brown & Dancers, Lane made history in 2012 as the first local and independent black choreographer to have his work commissioned by the Atlanta Ballet. From there, he participated in the 2015-2016 Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation New Directions Choreography Lab, and collaborated with dance legends across the United States. In 2010, he began incorporating multimedia into his performative work. His film projects, “Just Another Day,” “How to Kill a Ghost,” and “When The Beat Drops,” showcase the complexity, playfulness and creativity within this dynamic choreographer’s mind.

Lane’s choreographic voice and the growth of his repertoire share one common thread: they are fast. Lane nods to his up-tempo inclinations when he says, “My work is fast because the hyperactive boy with anxiety is still in there.” Lucky for us, he is helping to shape the future of dance before our very eyes.
