Internal Landscapes is the culmination of fourteen years of movement research, movement technique classes and personal introspection that have created the revolutionary methodology of Internal Landscapes. John Ollom’s practice is defined as archetypal movement that leads to art creation.

Many dancers, actors, performance artists and non-performers have come to work with John Ollom, the creator of the Internal Landscapes methodology and his company of Ollom Movement Artists. Peer into a book that not only educates but tells personal stories of unbelievable honesty. Issues of rape, homosexuality, and survival through trauma have been addressed in this methodology. Artists that have dared to have the courage to create art that is poignant and revelatory have found John Ollom’s practice to be the key to their process.

The Vice President of Winning Writers, Jendi Reiter said,

“John Ollom is a healer.  He binds up the internalized wounds of oppression that split body form soul, male from female, humanity from the natural world.  His medicine is dance.  But it’s a kind of dance you may have never seen before, arising from each performer’s inner truth rather than enforced conformity to an external ideal.”



John Ollom MFA is the author of the book Internal Landscapes.

John received his MFA from Goddard College and his BFA in Ballet from Texas Christian University where he trained under Stephanie McFarlane Rand, Li Chou Cheng of Beijiing Ballet and Fernando Bujones of American Ballet Theatre and the Royal Ballet.


He has been teaching in New York City and around the country since 2000. His methodology has been taught at the Eastern Michigan University, Kalani Retreat Center in Hawaii, Atmananda Yoga Sequence, Baruch College, CUNY Hostos, CUNY in the Heights, Easton Mountain Retreat Center and every summer at the Ollom Movement Art Summer Program at Smith College.


In 2010-2011, John Ollom was chosen as the Artist in Residence at the Eastern Michigan University Dance Department. Since 2002, John has served as the Artistic Director of Ollom Art/Prismatic Productions Inc./ where he has choreographed such works as The Catalyst, Love and Longing, The Journey, John Ollom’s The Journey, Anatomy of Woman, Dido and Aeneas, The Other Species, Love Stories, Internal Landscapes, Man of War, M.U.D.
