Mathew Janczewski

Mathew Janczewski's ARENA DANCES
Executive Artistic Director
Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul Area
Mathew Janczewski was born and raised in Round Lake, IL, and received his professional training at the University of Minnesota. An award winning choreographer based in Minneapolis, MN, Mathew creates work on his own contemporary dance company, Mathew Janczewski’s ARENA DANCES founded in 1995. While serving as the Artistic Director, Janczewski has created over thirty dance works, enhanced educational outreach programs, developed commissions with local artists, as well as launching regional, national and international touring over its 22 year history.

I want to talk about the importance of sharing the diverse approaches and aesthetics of contemporary dance to youth! Students learn movement, techniques for creating their own dances, and ways to talk about and watch dance.
