My Mission

Contact Jeanne at:  jeanne@simonsonlegacy.com

My goal is to create an independently published 150- page art book that is a biographical mosaic of Lynn Simonson, the Simonson Technique, and the surrounding dance community. I will gather interviews, photos, videos, drawings, poems, paintings and mementos from the Simonson community capturing the grassroots movement of The Simonson Legacy from its inception to present day. Through a collage of images and writing, I will explore the path that Lynn Simonson traversed as a jazz dance teacher and how her teaching evolved into a comprehensive foundation for training dancers. I will trace the imprint left by different Simonson teachers, roam through the various spaces the community has called home and celebrate the love and generosity that Lynn Simonson has shared for so many years with the dance world and beyond.
