Iyun Harrison

Iyun Harrison, artistic director of the Seattle-based dance company Ashani Dances and an assistant professor of dance at Cornish College of the Arts, has danced professionally with Dance Theater of Harlem, Ballet Hispanico of New York, the National ance Theatre Company of Jamaica, and Ailey II. A graduate of the Julliard School, Harrison has performed on NBC and PBS and as a guest artist with St. Louis Black Repertory Theater.

“Being in class with several individuals who direct their own companies inspired me to explore the possibility of founding my own. The mentorships I developed with my professors still provide support for the work I do and hope to do with my company.”
