The Vanessa Long Dance Company was founded by choreographer and stage director Vanessa Long, with the intent of raising awareness of social issues in the current world. Vanessa's extensive training and strong interest in current events lead her to start her own form of activism in the way of a dance company. Vanessa has made a stunning career for herself, with her unique, angled style. She has choreographed several Off-Broadway shows, Music Videos, and Films while in NYC. Vanessa's training lies both in theatre and dance, which leads her to often combine the two in her work. The Vanessa Long Dance company cherishes its audience, and strives to create works that can effect and relate to its audience members. We believe that in order to see change in our world, we need to encourage conversations. Our pieces are highly theatrical and all tell a story that illustrates the problem set before us. We aim to create entertaining pieces that engage our audiences and motivate them to challenge the status quo.
