Liana Kleinman is a dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker from Los Angeles, CA. Her work uses gesture and improvisation to explore intimacy, the awkward, who we are when we wear party hats.

Liana received her BFA in Dance in 2018 from Marymount Manhattan College with minors in Biology and Chemistry. Liana is a current company member with LCDS’s EDGE Dance Company, and has worked with Soluq Dance Theater, The Movement Playground, and RyderDance. In 2019, she was invited to The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity's residency, Preparing the Ground, under the direction of Medhi Walerski and Pierre Pontvianne, and curated by Emily Molnar. 

As a filmmaker, Liana was honored to work as the video documentation intern at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival 2016, filming works for companies such as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, ARIAS Company, and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet.
