ABOUT JUEL D. LANG:

Atlanta-based dancer and choreographer Juel D. Lane was trained in the South, moved to New York in 2002 and danced with Ronald K. Brown/Evidence, A Dance Company for six years.

Lane returned to Atlanta in 2009 and leaped to prominence in 2012 when he became the first local, independent choreographer to create a major work for Atlanta Ballet. Moments of Dis was an audience pleaser, a combustible mix of ballet-in-sneakers, hip-hop and a driving score by Quentin “Eq” Johnson.

In 2013, Lane was named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” and since then he has continued choreographing, dancing and teaching.

Juel was one of four choreographers chosen to participate in the 2015-16 New Directions Choreography Lab, a program curated by Robert Battle, artistic director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

The lab gave emerging choreographers an opportunity to develop their ideas with a group of students in The Ailey School, without the pressure of preparing for a performance. Lane is the first Atlantan ever to participate in the program.
