Amy J Lambert (Johnson) has been dancing in her living room, her car, and while walking down the street since age 3. You may remember her from her memorable performance as ‘Snow Flurry #6’ in the Vancouver Dance Theater’s production of The Nutcracker.
Lambert is a Seattle-based dance artist who playfully choreographs and directs in the realms of musical theater and concert dance. She obtained her BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts in 2011 (Magna Cum Laude), and is currently the artistic director and choreographer for AJnC Dance-Theater which presents whimsical and engaging works often based on literature and historical research. She has recently worked in collaboration with choreographer Markeith Wiley on a performance trilogy based on the work of Hunter S. Thompson, called A Savage Journey. Lambert was also a collaborator in the multi-disciplinary collective The Eternal Glow Project lead by Tim Smith-Stewart. Her work has been presented at Velocity Dance Center (Bridge Project, and Fall Kick-Off), On the Boards (12 Minutes Max), Seattle International Dance Festival, BOOST Dance Festival, The Slate Theater, Centerstage Theatre, Musicircus at Town Hall Seattle, and Out of Sight, a contemporary visual and performance art festival.
She is a co-producer of Against the Grain/Men In Dance and an Artist-in-Residence at The Nest/eXit Space Dance. Lambert is also a dance educator and teaches weekly technique classes in Modern and Ballet for the Seattle dance community.
She has been a guest teacher in several Seattle area Middle and High schools. She has had the pleasure of working with and performing works by Merce Cunningham, Robert Battle/Battleworks, Tonya Lockyer, Daniel Linehan, Amy O’Neal, Markeith Wiley, Maya Soto, Deborah Wolf, Tim Smith-Stewart, Molly Sides, Dylan Ward, and Marlo Ariz (Martin), among others.
