LEIMAY Collaborator


Jeff joined LEIMAY as a member of the performance ensemble in 2015. He began his dance training at age six and his gymnastics training at age four. His professional experience began in CT with The Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP) in 2010. Joining the original cast of 20+ years, Jeff confronted social injustice through the medium of dance theater. In 2012 Jeff also began dancing with DancEnlight, another company based in the Hartford area. Under the direction of Lorelei Chang, DancEnlight combined traditional styles of Chinese dance with classical Limon technique. While balancing his dance career Jeff also coached the boys team at Tri-Town Gymnastics Center, where he grew up competing as a member of one of the top teams in the region. Now a Brooklyn based dance artist at 25, Jeff is excited to collaborate with LEIMAY on their next endeavor. Currently, he is performing with several other independent projects as well as coaching gymnastics at The Chelsea Piers Field House.

LEIMAYblog // Jeff Shortt on Tackling borders

Posted on September 13, 2015 at 3:30am 0 Comments

When I was first tackling the concept of borders there were many examples that came to mind fairly quickly. Some of these examples were metaphorical and others more concrete - all of them sharing what I now consider to have been a weakness in my foundational understanding of what a border can be. I was constantly envisioning a structure that divided two things. Perhaps these things were once one thing. Perhaps they had actually never made contact with each other, and the drama before me was…


Leimay Retreat

In comparison with recent weeks, my time spent between January and May creating with the Leimay ensemble felt a bit like a long introduction to old members of an estranged family. There was a clear connection between the ensemble, but the connection may have thrived only in the desired destination. It was the journey that confused me (I'll speak for myself). In the beginning I could sense everyone's will to contribute to a whole, but now I realize that not everyone understood just how to… Continue

When confronting the concept of BORDERS there is a relationship that I feel is necessary to investigate before defining the term. That relationship is the dichotomy of natural and unnatural borders, the difference between them, and how they interact with each other to divide the world we live in.

A great mountain range is a perfect example of a natural border. It is a collection of pillars created by the movement of the earth. These pillars control the weather that we experience,…
