Lori Yuill is an independent choreographer, performer and teaching artist. She did her undergraduate work at TCU and then skipped town to perform with Momentum Danza Contemporanea in Guatemala. In 2000 Lori returned to Houston and performed with Suchu Dance. She also madeFloating/Falling for DiverseWorks’ Houston Performing Artist Residency during this period of time.
