Learn how teach dance and provide a comprehensive dance education. This Laboratory is for artists and educators of all dance disciplines who want to learn how to increase their students’ creative ability by providing organized lesson plans aimed at solving educational problems using methodological tools of analysis. Promote artistic education and enhance the social and cultural community. Dance is a profound exploration of life.

We must improve how we teach Dance as a theoretical and practical discipline.


It is an honor for me to be able to sustain and support dancers in the delicate task of cultivating their awareness of themselves as individual artists. As we become aware of our passions and strengths, we are able to wake the creative impulse in others.  I seek what is essential and want to connect or reconnect people with the joy of dance.

Wherever I go, I teach with a human and comprehensive pedagogy in which creativity, ethics and aesthetics are intertwined. – Anabella

What does it mean to disappear?
In Pursuit is a dance-theater piece that explores the themes of death, memory and hope through a collage of juxtapositions.
“I want the happiness that comes from both remembering and from fighting against remembering. A happiness that includes the sadness, pain and injury of experience but also goes forward. Not memory that works like an anchor, but like a catapult. Not a memory that you just arrive at, but one that’s a launch pad.”
Eduardo Galeano
In Pursuit of Happiness is an ongoing daily memory trip to remember and honor Mrs. Lenzu’s father, Antonio, who served as her guide and scaffolding. From a vibrating silence emerges unexpected meaning, so profoundly personal that is anonymous and universally accessible.

Gracias Agustina Lluma & Balletin Dance en Argentina

por celebrar mi década de Danza en Nueva York y por su apoyo permanente!!!!

“Diez años en Nueva York, marcan un intenso período de mi vida (de mis 30 a 40 años). Me mudé a Nueva York hace 11 años, me convertí en mamá, profesora en diferentes universidades y cumplí mi sueño de crear una compañía de baile en Estados Unidos (la primera que dirigí fue L’Atelier Ballet Contemporaneo en Argentina (1994-2000) y la segunda en Roma (2002-2005)”, recordó. “Vivir en Nueva York es gratificante, difícil e inspirador. Trabajar con bailarines de todo el mundo y con un público tan internacional, es el fuego que purifica mis ideas coreográficas”, finalizó la argentina que asegura encontrarse “feliz y orgullosa”.

Immense Gratitude


Dear Friend,

I’m writing to extend my immense gratitude for your support of Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama over these last 10 years!

Today, we invite you to continue supporting us for 10 more years, helping to make outstanding performances and high caliber educational programs! 

You know that I don’t do anything half-way – so it shouldn’t surprise you that Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama (ALDD) is going to explode onto the New York dance scene in the next couple years! In the last 10 years, ALDD presented 300 Performances, 12 Choreographic works in 80 venues in USA and Argentina and taught in more than 40 institutions, colleges, universities, professional dance schools and festivals. 

Since 2010, ALDD offered 22 DanceDrama workshops in New York. DanceDrama Labs Workshop Series are an exclusive, personalized, tailored program for future dancers, choreographers and teachers of all dance disciplines and techniques,  that want to develop their potential with an emphasis on both dance and theater performance skills. Sustain and support dancers in the delicate task of cultivating their awareness of themselves as individual artists. Our focus for this series of workshops: Technique and Repertory, Choreography and Improvisation, Voice, Acting and Methodology of Teaching Dance. Teachers:  Anabella Lenzu, Daniel Pettrow, Anna Hayman and Lauren Ohmer.

  What Happened in 2016? 

  • ALDD did an amazing Argentinean tour presenting Unveiling Motion and Emotion and premiering In Pursuit of Happiness with Lauren Ohmer in Buenos Aires and Bahia Blanca. Hosted the 6 DanceDrama Laboratory Workshop Series; Re-staged the full-length show Pachamama: Mother World with a new cast of 5 beautiful dancers: Lauren Ohmer, Sydney Ruf-Wong, Graham Cole, Hope Parker and Dina Denis.

 My personal achievements this year:

  •  Stated my MFA in Choreography and Visual Arts at Wilson College (PA), I was artist in residency at DUO Multicultural Art Center (DMAC).
  • I present my book “ Unveiling “ at Figment Festival in Governsnor Island and wrote articles and reviews for  Attitude: The Dancers Magazine.
  • I acted as Speaker at  the Panel “Teaching: Options and Choices” at the NYU Tisch MFA Dance Incubator (NY) and was a guest Teacher for Gallating (NYU).
  •   I was part of Selection Panel for Emerging Choreographer Series at LaGuardia Performing Art Center (NY), guest judge for xyz nyc at The Tank and and Advisory Board Member of IDACO 2016 (Italian Dance Connections Festival-NY).


The mission of Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama is to introduce people to dance theater and develop a cultural, educational and artistic exchange between New York and communities in Argentina, Chile, and Italy. Teaching and performing worldwide emboldens, promotes and enriches people, communities and

As an independent choreographer with a dynamic company, it is a challenging and expensive venture to create work and perform in New York City, and even more difficult to do so abroad, with travel expenses.

If your company has a Matching Gift program, your donation can go twice as far! 

Thank you for your support. You are a vital part of our future. Without your support: artists, family, friends, audience… we would not exist. Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama is made possible ONLY with your help!

All donors will be acknowledged on our website and in our newsletters.
