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.
