Shane Larson was born and raised in Minnesota, where he received his training at the St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists. He graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, with a B.F.A. in Dance and a minor in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies. During his time in New York City, he has branched out to collaborate with punk musicians, filmmakers, improvisational music ensembles, and site-specific visual artists. He also had the opportunity to study at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance in Austria, where he was exposed to the expanse of the European contemporary dance scene. With a new outlook on the limitless possibilities and pathways of the body, he hopes to continue the exploration of dance with a sense of newness and discovery. Shane joined the Company in 2016.
