Donna-Lynne Larson, Founder/Artistic Director

Donna-Lynne Larson, BFA, has trained and worked extensively in theatre, film, television, video, and radio as performer, director, choreographer, researcher, and writer over the last 30+ years. She has facilitated diverse arts programs, retreats, productions, and events for diverse groups, schools, businesses, and theatres throughout Canada. She is a former principal dancer with the renowned Canadian performance company, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, artistic director of The Alberta Centre of Acting Studies, as well as program director and teacher at Gastown Actor's Studio. 

​She is also a wellness advocate/researcher and, since the release of her internationally acclaimed film about thyroid disease, “Walk Talk Dance Sing,” she continues to explore the topic of “holistic health”--another passion of hers!

As she has discovered, Creativty/Arts and Health/Wellness are a potent combination---they are inextricably linked. 

In the spirit of artistic growth and self-discovery, she develops innovative and exceptional programs, events, and retreats in these areas for all ages and skill levels, from amateur to professional. She specializes in expressive arts, life skills and holistic well-being, acting and movement studies, writing, and performance. She is also a busy performer and producer, with several projects in development.​​


Welcome to my creative playground.  

" Lift your mind to the hills, criticize nothing, evaluate nothing. Just let THE THING come thundering in. It will be chaos for a while, but eventually an order will appear and an order you did not know."

StudioWild is Donna-Lynne Larson's professional production, performance, and educational organization.
