Derion Loman, Apprentice, was born and raised in Fairfield, CA. His interest in dance came from his involvement in color guard where he had the opportunity to tour with the World Championship Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps. Derion graduated in 2012 with a BA in Psychology and a BFA in Dance from the University of California Santa Barbara. During his time at UCSB he trained primarily in release based modern with influences from other notable choreographers such as Limon, Lubovitch, and Horton. He participated in UCSB?s Senior Dance company where he performed Speeds, a work created by Jennifer Muller. Most recently, he was a pioneer member of BHdos, Ballet Hispanico?s Second Company, where he performed at a variety of events and venues including Symphony Space Theatre, The FBI, and The Presidential Inauguration. Derion would like to thank all his colleagues, mentors, friends, family, and you - the audience - for allowing him to cultivate and share his artistry.
