I am SO excited to announce I will be joining the Vanessa Long Dance Company’s Long2 Dance company starting in October 2018! Here is a blurb taken from her company’s webpage about her work!
“Vanessa Long Dance Company, a NYC based dance company, creates and performs original work by Artistic Director and Founder Vanessa Long. Since it’s founding in October 2014, VLDC quickly captured the attention of fellow artists, presenters, and audience members with its award winning work, ensemble of dancers, and fearless work tackling social and political issues we face in everyday life.” – vanessalongdancecompany.com
Long2 is the Vanessa Long second company! I will training and performing with Vanessa Long and her core company members starting in the fall, in addition to training with other guest choreographers who come in to set work on the Long2 dance ensemble. I am so excited I cannot contain it!!
I auditioned for her on April 17 for the main company and was cut, so I did not expect her to reach out to me the next day and offer me a spot in her second company! ❤ I’ve been wanting to work with her for a few years now, and a dance professor of mine actually told me I should look into working with her during my senior year of college back in 2017.
This opportunity could not have come at a more significant time in my life, and I think it validates that I am on the right path. All of my auditioning, training, and hard work is starting to pay off! And the beautiful part is that this is only the beginning! I can’t wait to see where this road leads me, and I am thankful to participate in any way that I can.
Have a great day everybody!
