Honoree

Lori Spada Lynch
Co-Founder and Artistic Director,
Artistry Dance Project

Lori, born in Wilmington Delaware, moved to NYC in 2002 to continue her career as a dancer and teacher. In 2013 her dream became a reality when she became co-founder and artistic director at Artistry Dance Project, alongside Kristina Wozniak Leitenberger. Teaching children has always been a passion of hers and she feels there is no greater gift than to be able to empower children to achieve their goals in and outside of the dance studio.

Lori believes one of the most important lessons ADP tries to instill is the importance of family, community and giving back. After the introduction of the ADP holiday fundraiser and performances, she was amazed by all Blythedale had to offer their patients. She had no idea how much Blythedale, and all the people who are a part of it, would impact the lives of the ADP family in such an unbelievable way. Lori cherishes being able to be a part of and give back to such an incredible organization. She feels that knowing that their efforts are going toward helping those children in need is heartwarming. Lori extends her thanks to everyone at Blythedale for allowing ADP to be a part of the Blythedale family and for “giving us more than we could ever give to you”.
