Brynn Bodair, a versatile performer and choreographer, hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She trained extensively with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s principal dancers and received private coaching from The Kirov Ballet’s Jutec Kasamon. She studied with the Atlanta Ballet, Texas Theatre Ballet, and Pittsburgh Ballet. She has performed in several classical ballets, and with Maria Caruso’s Bodiography Contemporary Ballet Company as a trainee. Recently, she performed her own work “Visions of Gideon” as a part of The Bach Music Festival, as well as created Cultivating Compassion, a forty five minute dance work focusing on humanizing legal rhetoric. She interned for the Bill T. Jones Summer Intensive at New York Live Arts, and trained with Keigwin and Company at The Juilliard School. Brynn currently attends Loyola Marymount University where she is pursuing a double degree in Dance and Political Science, as well as pursuing her passion for film while receiving a minor in Screenwriting from the School of Film and Television. She continues her dance training with Dance Teacher Magazine’s featured teacher Roz Leblanc Loo, BODYTRAFFIC’s co-artistic director Lillian Barbeito, and other esteemed faculty. Brynn is eager to create, spreading her infectious motivation, interdisciplinary knowledge and work ethic with all.

Lauren Delisle is a screenwriter, director, and movement artist based in Los Angeles, California. She was initially drawn to the film medium during her undergraduate studies at Loyola Marymount University when she realized it could bridge her passions for visual art and human form. This past year, her writing has been featured in Jacky Song’s “Lonely In The Dusk,” which was selected to be screened at the 20th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival. She has also worked on dance-focused music visuals with Elizabeth Archer and Connor Smyers and is thrilled to have been contracted on her first feature-length film adaptation, as primary screenwriter, which is set to begin production next year. In her spare time, she enjoys writing articles on mental health and media as editor and staff writer for MedTruth as well as dancing in her kitchen and reading beside her cat, Oat.
