Loren Daniels, Founder and Creator of Mannequin in Motion, began mimicking store mannequins at age four. In her teens, her interest grew in the fashion and modeling industry. During an in-store fashion event she was asked to pose in the window of a retail establishment. It was that request that planted the seed, paving the way to put her ideas in motion. She developed her skills in front of the camera, hosted a cable television show and was a facilitator for group events on the topic of fashion, fitness and self confidence. Her vision for incorporating creative learning concepts with a colorful cast of costumed performers (for preschoolers up to the 3rd grade) was developed in the year 2000. Each 30-minute presentation revolved around the designated theme of the month and introduced a ‘timeless value’ to children in a fun-filled activity.
Today, Loren coordinates and choreographs vignettes with a select group of performers, each trained to handle specific promotional or entertainment themes. Her living statues have performed at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. and have traveled as far away as Shanghai, China.
“Before the PACER Taster we had no idea what we were in store for. Your presence is such a whimsical and visual treat. Mannequin in Motion’s interaction with the children at the Taster was so precious. Appearing on KARE 11 with the living mannequins helped build excitement and momentum for the night of the event. The performance in the lobby at the Benefit was beyond anything we could imagine. Thank you for creating so much energy and excitement at our event!”
”The Galleria has worked with Mannequin in Motion and they have proven to be creative, flexible, dependable and a pleasure to work with. Loren’s talents span from writing to directing, dancing, singing and of course her wonderful living mannequins. She employs outstanding people to implement her programs and is a truly gifted person that delivers what she promises.”
”We are honored that you were able to appear at BRONNER’S CHRISTmas WONDERLAND. You are a captivating performer who certainly knows how to enchant your audience – young and old alike! Your attention to detail is astounding. Everything – hair, make-up, costume and stage set-up – was meticulously well done. Mannequin in Motion arrived early and stayed late. Your appearances, held throughout the three-day event, were a huge success. It is always exciting to see the new ideas that you come up with.”

”Among all the other activities we had going on, the human mannequins were the most talked-about and unique feature. Everyone keeps asking me how I got the idea and where I found you! I have to admit that I stole the idea from one of your previously satisfied clients, but I still get the kudos for making it happen! The guests absolutely loved the changing wardrobe of the mannequins that represented various decades. Thank you for keeping in touch with me throughout the process with ideas for our Grand Opening event.”
”At the Kennedy Center ‘s Annual Open House Arts Festival the living Statue of Liberty was presented by Mannequin in Motion and performed for the entire 6 hour duration of the event. The special magic that she had with the many children who posed for photos with her was an indication of her unique ability to touch their lives; it is apparent that her work is an act of love.”
