I am very happy to have Banning Bouldin back in Nashville developing New Dialect. Banning is an amazing artist and New Dialect promises to be a wonderful addition to the fabric of dance in Nashville. We are very lucky to have such terrific creativity here, helping to build a broader audience for dance in our community.

Banning Bouldin is an artist of the rarest quality. Every choice is dictated by deep, personal authenticity and integrity. The fire of her intensity leaves no dross.
— Stephen Pier, Artistic Director, the Hartt School


Banning Bouldin has a deep passion for dance as an art from and has the ability to assess and re-assess how that form is articulated within her personal practice, the practice of others, and within the community at large. I hope that she will continue to have opportunities to positively influence others as she has influenced me.
