Mary Lane has been an independent choreographer in the Washington, D.C. region
for several years and in 2009 she established Unevenlane.
Lane began her movement training early in life, and as a two time attendee of The
American Dance Festival, she discovered her aptitude and passion for choreography
while still in high school. In conjunction with her dance training, Lane also studied
the violin as a young child. Though she eventually abandoned her music lessons in
favor of spending more time in the dance studio, her intrinsic respect for musical
composition remained as a defining element of her dancing. Her choreographic
works are influenced by her focus on developing a physical relationship with the
music – layering movement on top of rhythms, scales, motifs and themes – to create
a unique partnership between music and movement that engages the audience on a
deeper level by syncing their visual and auditory senses to create a larger and more
meaningful experience.


Lane has had the opportunity to train and work with Gerri Houlihan, Jeffery
Bullock, James Sutton, Theresa Ruth Howard (Alvin Ailey), Mark Coniglio and
Dawn Stoppiello (Troika Ranch), Nataly Kasporava (Kannon Dance), Dana Tai
Soon Burgess (DTSB&Co), and Maida Withers (Dance Construction Company).


Lane’s work has been presented throughout the Washington, D.C. area as well as in
Lexington, Virginia and Phoenix, Arizona. In addition to directing Unevenlane, she
is currently serving as the Assistant Director of the Community Dance Connection
Theatre, located in Lexington, Virginia.
