Quynn Johnson is an award-winning performer, choreographer, and Credentialed Teaching Artist (CAT) through Young Audiences, Arts for Learning. Described by The Washington Post as having “deliciously buoyant movement quality and a natural organic rhythm,” she studied dance under masters of tap and West African dance. Quynn has performed and toured extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad, including at the Kennedy Center and the International Festival de Cajon in Lima, Peru. Her arts-integrated residencies bridge tap dance with literacy, math, and social-emotional learning.
Quynn’s non-profit performance company SOLE Defined, co-created with Ryan Johnson, is committed to using dance as a tool to bring awareness to social issues and keep dance in the classroom, through a fusion of tap dance and body percussion.
