About the Artists
Founded in October 2014, the VLDC has created over thirty-four works showcasing issues ranging from the environment to gender based issues. Vanessa Long strongly believes in storytelling as a positive way to reach the community. She believes, as many ancient cultures did, that storytelling is a relatable and effective way to remember the past and change the future. Because of the times we currently live in, the VLDC's work is often short and to the point to keep audiences engaged. They have performed 87 performances between 2014-2017 all over tri-state area. VLDC has performed at several dance festivals and popular venues such as Dixon Place, Gelsey Kirkland ArtsCenter, University Settlement, and the Celebration of Whimsy Theatre. They have been featured on the cover of the Dance Informa August 2017 issue, with supporting article inside. The company has also beenfeatured in Broadway World, Asana Magazine, Yoga Magazine, Dance Teacher Magazine. VLDC has performed in Peru - Lima, Peru - Chincha Alta, Peru - Laran, Peru and is traveling for performances in Borgo San Lorenzo, Italy on August 26th. They are absolutely ecstatic to be back at Anita's Way and working with Chashama Again!
