Jay Newlon

Originally a BFA candidate in Acting at the University of Tennessee (Clarence Brown Equity Theater), Jay transferred his energies to dance and studied under such luminaries as Eric Hawkins, Murray Louis, Nanette Charisse, and Hector Zaraspe in New York. He was an apprentice with the International Ballet of Caracas and performed in Boston with Jassin' (Jeannette Neil), the Danny Sloan Dance Company, Bay State Ballet, and the Opera Company of Boston. After a long hiatus, his recent engagements include performances with the Boston Dance Company, the Academy of Ballet Arts, and featured roles in the Northern Ballet Theater.

Returning to his theater roots he has performed with Concord Players in Arcadia (Jellaby), Amadeus (Venticelli I), Follies (Ensemble), Mister Roberts (Stefanowski), Little Women (Father), The Drowsy Chaperone (Superintendent), Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Dancer), Cabaret (Max), West Side Story (Riff), The Importance of Being Ernest (Algernon), Twelfth Night(Antonio), and Chicago (Casely).

His love of theater is only surpassed by his love of and support by his remarkable wife Lynne.
