Leymis Bolaños Wilmott

Leymis Bolaños Wilmott, a Cuban American artist, mother, and teacher with rhythm inextricably in her bones, found her voice through dance at an early age. As the Founder and Artistic Director of Sarasota Contemporary Dance, she has the privilege of using those bones to create art that has been called "stunning and imaginative" by Carrie Seidman of the Herald Tribune.

As Artist-in-Residence/Dance Instructor for over a decade at New College of Florida, she shares her love of dance as an influential member of Florida's dance community. Leymis pioneered the Dance and Healing certificate at the University of Florida and holds a Master of Fine Arts in Performance and Choreography from Florida State University.
