Lani Dickinson

Princess Grace Award:
Dance Scholarship, 2015

Lani Dickinson was primarily trained in classical ballet and modern. She attended two summers in the Boston Ballet’s intensives and two years at Idyllwild Arts Academy, with merit scholarship. Summer of 2010, she was introduced to contemporary ballet at the Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet. She was enrolled in their B.F.A. program immediately out of high school. Staying on the Dean’s List and receiving academic scholarship has helped Lani to continue her education. During the school year, Lani works alongside master choreographers such as Christian Buns, Gregory Dawson, Maurya Kerr, Sidra Bell, and Arturo Fernandez. She traveled to Guatemala for a non-profit organization called JUNTOS Collective in January, 2013. In recent summers, she has studied under Alessio Silvestrin, Alex Ketley, Shannon Gillen, Anton Lachky, and Eric Beauschesne.
