Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance Donate to this artist
Cherylyn Lavagnino's mission is to create movement that engages an audience by aligning the rigor of ballet with the humanistic performance values of contemporary dance. Her choreography uses the physically limiting state of dancing "en pointe" as a platform to delve into the range of human interaction and emotion. The exaggerated classical ballet form is directed to express sensitive and honest portrayals by her dancers. Music is paramount to Lavagnino's creative process and its influence pushes and prods her imagery. Live music is a hallmark.
