SHAINA CANTINO is a choreographer, teacher and performer.
Cantino is interested in how our bodies are vehicles for re-conceiving, through sensory perception and imagination, our dynamic relationship with our environments and ourselves. Cantino synthesizes somatic and compositional sensibilities in her choreography, teaching and performance. She combines her dance training with intensive theater studies, pursuing how each is integral to the other for vulnerable, communicative performance. Cantino creates dance-theater as a means to examine specificity and honor the indescribable.
