DIANNE ENO is a native New Hampshire environmental artist, choreographer, and performer. Professional training includes Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and School and Dance Theater Workshop in NYC, where she was selected as a participant in Bessie Schoenberg's Choreographer's Lab. Ms. Eno is the founder and artistic director of Dianne Eno/Fusion Danceworks (formerly Dianne Eno Dance Company), presenting her original nature and Native American inspiredModern dance works. She has presented her work internationally, in the 1998 England Tour of the original Native America*inspired theater piece, "A Circle 'Round the Sun", where she served as principal collaborator, choreographer, performer, researcher andNative American sign language interpreter in conjunction with the Plymouth State College Chamber Stagers and the Plymouth State College Education Department (Plymouth, NH).

Often staging her dances in unlikely places in the out-of-doors, she and her company have performed an innovative brand of dance on mountain summits, in rivers and streams in forests and along the rugged and rocky coastline of Maine . In 1998 and 1999, Ms. Eno was Artist-in-Residence at Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor , Maine . Much of Ms. Eno's work, both educational and performance-oriented, is fused with Native American Sign Language creating a unique movement style reflecting her own American Indian roots. Her strong orientation in Native American values is evident in both her teaching philosophy and in her nature-inspired works and productions. Her most recent workshop presentation, "Dancing the Medicine Wheel: Model of the Creative Process" has been presented at a variety of venues including The Sacred Dance Guild in Ottawa, Canada, and the Art/ Culture/ Nature and Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment Conference at Boston University in 2003. Other recent performancecredits include: commissioned environmental site-specific dance works, "Dances for Sugar River " at the New England Artists Trust IV ( Newport , NH ).

 Ms. Eno has an M.A. from New York University in NYC, in the study of Environmental Conservation Education/ Environmental Art. She is currently a doctoral student (Environmental Studies) at Antioch New England University  Her areas of research interest are in the further refinement and development of her body of work, “environmental dance”, particularly (1) how environmental dance may bring innovation to the field of environmental education and (2) how environmental dance may be used to demonstrate the human body as an extension of the natural environment.
