Brooklyn-based Actor, Movement Director & Choreographer Jay Dunn creates unforgettably dynamic, story-driven, comedic & dramatic movement and choreography for plays and opera. In a former life, Jay was a professional blackjack card-counter with an offshoot of the legendary MIT crew. He made his living by strapping tens of thousands of dollars to his body and laying down huge bets in casinos all over the U.S. (legally), all while playing “Big Player” characters who would plausibly give that kind of high stakes action. An alum of Middlebury College, Jay earned his MFA equivalent from The Lecoq School, a conservatory with notable alums Geoffrey Rush, Julie Taymor and Isla Fisher. Jay also plays guitar and banjo, is a certified CPR & First Aid Instructor. He currently teaches at the SUNY Purchase BFA program and The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC.
