Stanley Love was born in Iowa. When he was 18 years old he came to New York City to attend The Juilliard School and follow his dream of furthering his life as a creative performing artist. Upon his graduation in 1992, Stanley Love Performance Group was founded. Mr. Love works with performing artists through a dance basis. His aesthetic is based in schizophrenic-like structure and eclecticism. He utilizes different musical, dance, and choreographic styles. Much of the inspiration comes from the soul of the music, whether it be emotional, theatrical, rhythmic, funky or whatever. SLPG has performed in many, many NYC venues, some being The Kitchen, PS122, PS1, The Whitney Biennial, Paula Cooper Gallery, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, DTW, Dixon Place, Cooper Union, NYU, Movement Research at the Judson Church, The Limelight, The Tunnel, The Pyramid Club and in Central Park for a 9/11 remembrance.
