Lorraine Aston


It all started with The Nutcracker. It usually does. At the age of three, Lorraine fell in love with sugar plums and snowflakes and was soon studying ballet in her native Kingston. She was also reading just about every book she could get her hands on. Many, many years later, these childhood hobbies translated into a dual career in contemporary dance and communications. In various combinations, Lorraine has been dancing, writing, web designing, editing, teaching dance, choreographing and marketing for the past 15 years in Toronto. And soon she’ll be adding another skill into the mix. Lorraine is currently training to be a dance/movement therapist through the National Centre for Dance Therapy at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens.

Arriving at Dance Therapy with Les Grand Ballets Canadiens (and with my husband and child)

Often, accommodating a big idea involves expanding your vision rather than changing your current plan. For Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and for me, our big ideas led us to dance therapy.
