Lisa Long holds an MFA in choreography from CalArts and an AA in Occupational Therapy from Swedish Institute NYC. For thirteen years she danced professionally, first for Dallas Black Dance Theatre, and for eight years as a principal dancer with Dance Kaleidoscope, under the artistic direction of David Hochoy (former rehearsal director of the Martha Graham Dance Company). Currently, an assistant professor at Western Kentucky University, she has also taught at CalArts, UCLA, and Butler University. Her choreography has been produced Off- Broadway, at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Electric Lodge, New Works Festival, and for Rogue Machine Theater and has been favorably reviewed by the New York Times.  Backstage described her work as “imaginative and inspired.” In 2012 her choreography for Chevrolet won fourth place in MOFILM's Las Vegas commercial competition. Lisa is passionate about passing on her knowledge of technique and love for dance as a transcendent art form to the next generation of dancers.
