ARDEN LEONE

DANCER | CHOREOGRAPHER | ARTIST

ABOUT

Arden Leone, originally from Chicago, recently graduated Cum Laude from Southern Methodist University in May 2017 with a BFA in Dance Performance and a BA in Advertising.  While at SMU, Arden had the opportunity to perform works by choreographers such as Paul Taylor, Adam Hougland, José Limón, Robert Dekkers and Danny Buraczeski along with many others.

 

Arden has also had the privilege of training with many professional companies in Chicago and New York including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, The Joffrey Ballet, Visceral Dance Chicago, and Complexions Contemporary Ballet.  Previously, Arden was also a member of Extensions Dance Company, a pre-professional company, directed by Lizzie MacKenzie, that performed throughout the Chicago area.

 

In addition to performing, Arden also has a passion for choreography and has created several works of her own.  Most recently her piece, Veverica, was showcased at Dallas DanceFest 2017.  She is looking forward to establishing her choreographic voice within the dance community.

 

Currently, Arden is living in London as she was selected as one of fourteen dancers from around the world to join EDge, a dance company based at  the London Contemporary Dance School.  Throughout the 2017-2018 season, Arden will tour Europe while performing with the company and earn her Masters in Contemporary Dance. Arden is thrilled to be a part of EDge and is eager to work with renowned choreographers, continue to develop as an artist, and tour internationally.
