mover, shaker, silly laugh-maker.
TJ Canlon is a New Yorker and has been performing since she learned to walk, making her first steps a highly anticipated event. Watching old movies, memorizing the choreography, and playing all the parts in her living room ignited her passion for multitasking in theatrical disciplines. As a kid, she began working professionally in feature films including No Reservations and I am Legend, as well as TV shows The Sopranos and Law and Order. She retired her child acting career in order to save money on therapy, and also to participate in her 5th grade science fair, of course. She now holds a BFA in dance from The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, with a concentration in choreography. In her time at the conservatory, she worked on over 30 productions, performing, assisting, choreographing, directing, and writing. She is an alumnus and intern with The Performing Arts Project (TPAP) under the direction of Jonathan Bernstein, working alongside mentors Jessica Lea Patty, Neil Patrick Stewart, Juliane Godfrey, Nick Blaemire, Gavin Creel, and Zach Fine. Since returning to New York, TJ has worked with Dance Lab New York under the direction of Josh Prince and Val Salgado, furthering her choreographic training. She's currently working in immersive theater with Netflix's Stranger Things: The Experience. TJ likes cooking and hopes to some day learn to ride a bike.
