StoneDancer / About
My name is StoneDancer and my heritage is Afro-Native American. I'm an accomplished Broadway performer and community activist who works for the City of New York by day, and who expresses his artistic freedoms at night. In 2001, one of my original song was on a Grammy nominated album. I have developed a new sound called Indigenous Soul, a mix of Jazz, Euro-Funk, Rock and Soul. I invite you to become a part of my tribe by visiting my website and by helping me promote the songs that impact you the most.
Timothy 'StoneDancer' Coleman is a non-profit leader in New York City and continues to create after-school programming for children, and daytime workshops for parents of the South Bronx.
His eclectic taste in music sees him defying the boundaries of traditional categories, but the common thread in all of the music that he writes is that the messages are positive, truthful, and completely from the heart. For the record, he categorizes himself as more spiritual than religious.
StoneDancer attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. He performed in ‘5 Guys Named Moe’ at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival; the operetta, ‘The Most Happy Fella’ at the St. Louis Rep & the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park; as well as performing the role of tap-dancing ‘No Moe’ in the TheatreViginia’s production of ‘5 Guys Named Moe’.
StoneDancer performed in the First National Tour of the Tony Award Winning Musical 'RENT,' and also in the Broadway production as the character of Benny. He then joined the cast of the Broadway Smash Hit musical, 'Jekyll and Hyde' in the role of Jack.
In 2001 his song, "Stop by Monies" was on the Grammy Nominated Album, 'Here's the Deal' by Jazz/Funk band, Liquid Soul. The song was performed live on 'The Today Show' as the group toured the country in support of the album.
