Jordan Bonney

Jordan Bonney graduated in May 2017 magna cum laude, from Eastern University with degrees in dance and psychology. She has danced since she was three years old and loves to perform. She has participated in drama productions and chamber choir events in her younger years and has never limited her performing to just dance. But dance is her passion and she enjoys continuing her dance education. Before attending Eastern she trained in tap, ballet, jazz and lyrical for 11 years at Dance Dimensions in Albany New York. She performed in the Moscow ballet’s Nutcracker in 2012 and performed at many charity events. She also won titles at regional and national dance competitions. Once in college, she was trained in modern dance and choreography skills with Stephen Welsh, and also in ballet and Graham by Janine Bryant. She began assistant teaching at age 11 and realized how much she enjoys giving back to the younger generation of dancers. She has been setting choreography and teaching for Dance Dimensions in Albany over the summers since 2013. Around the same time she began working for Turn it Up Dance Challenge and touring with them around the east coast. She works currently as a backstage manager and assists master teachers at conventions. She has performed in every Eastern University winter, spring and senior dance concert since she began as a freshman at Eastern. She choreographed and performed a tap solo in the Eastern University winter dance concert in 2015 and choreographed and performed a duet in Eastern University’s spring dance concert in 2016. She also debuted her senior dance concert in February of 2017 and choreographed and performed a tap trio in her last show at Eastern in April 2017. Currently Jordan is continuing her education in Clinical Psychology but is thrilled to have the opportunity to teach dance and perform as much as she can, as she loves giving back to the young community of dancers around her.
