Janaki Banting
Arts Education Manager and Facilitator (Dance)

Janaki Banting is a mover, musician, and obsessive reader. She received a BFA in Contemporary Dance from Concordia University in 2013 where she had the opportunity and pleasure of collaborating with many wonderful artists, including Kerwin Barrington and Emily Leblanc. She also studied dance in Calgary with Decidedly Jazz Danceworks in 2014. Some of her favourite opportunities to perform in Calgary were those with RocketHouse Productions. In Toronto she participated in Anandam Dance Theatre’s presentation of ‘Glaciology’ at Nuit Blanche (2015) and was a performer and rehearsal director with Ismailova Theatre of Dance until 2017. Throughout her dance career, she has been most interested in work that is site-specific, interactive, and a little bit improvised.

In addition to her work with Swallowing Clouds, she is currently pursuing a Red Seal certificate in horticulture and creating what she likes to think of as ‘plant choreography’.
