EMERY LeCRONE is a New York and LA based movement director, professional dancer, and model who specializes in choreography and concert dance. She has a background classical ballet, having trained at The University of the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. After attending the School of American Ballet in New York and later dancing professionally with Charlotte Ballet in Charlotte, North Carolina, she moved to New York to further pursue her dance career and to develop her voice as a choreographer. Currently she works as a professional dancer with the Metropolitan Opera, as a model with TRUE Model Management, as well as a commercial choreographer with clients such as Nike, Vogue, and the Bolshoi Ballet.  The Solomon R. Guggenheim, The Joyce Theater, The New York City Ballet’s New York Choreographic Institute, and the New York City Center among others have commissioned her concert dance works. Recently her work debuted in Osaka, Japan and has otherwise been heavily commissioned within the United States.

 

Ms. LeCrone, often responding to both pulse and melody in the music at the same time, creates spatially multidimensional works that make her dancers look galvanized both above and below the waist. She has a sense of gesture and a feeling for footwork.

Emery LeCrone is a choreographer and creator of contemporary ballet works. She is in awe of the human form, the depths of human emotion, and our proclivity towards communication and self-expression.

Her process is collaborative and curious. She is deeply inspired by the dancers, artists, composers, musicians, and designers she collaborates with. Alongside them, she creates formations, interactions, and relationships in dance that intrigue her. Then, through the process of live performance, she watches them evolve onstage. Ms. LeCrone sees dance-making not as an expression of neatly formed ideas, but as a means of discovery. 

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
