Jessica Lang Dance nears final show
Jessica Lang Dance (JLD) and Selby Artists Management (SAM) announced in November that after the incredible success of the last seven years, JLD had decided to close on April 30, 2019, at the end of its 19-city, 2018-19 Season. Now dance enthusiasts across the country only have 10 chances left to see this company as its final performance edges closer.
Since its beginning, JLD has experienced tremendous success, building a repertoire of 25 dances choreographed by Artistic Director and Founder Jessica Lang. JLD has performed for audiences nationally and internationally in over 75 cities, 35 states and seven different countries.
Commenting on the closure, Lang previously stated, “It has been an honor and deeply rewarding for me to establish a company and to lead its phenomenal growth—in creativity, quality and rigorous touring—for the past seven years. I’m profoundly grateful to our dedicated dancers, board members, staff, donors, presenters, audiences and our agent, Margaret Selby and Selby Artists Mgmt., who made JLD a success.”
JLD, which has been presented at premier venues like Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Los Angeles Music Center, the Winspear Opera House and Palacio de Bellas Artes, among many others, is now preparing to visit Wharton Center for Performing Arts in East Lansing, MI on January 24; Byham Theater in Pittsburgh, PA on January 26; Weber State University in Ogden, UT on February 2; the University of Denver in Colorado on February 7; Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA on February 21; Hammer Theatre Center in San Jose, CA on February 23; YBCA Theater in San Francisco, CA on February 28-March 2; Smothers Theatre in Malibu, CA on March 5; Aecom Center for the Performing Arts in Aiken, SC on March 14; and Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, VA on April 14.
After April 30, Lang will continue her creative work as a choreographer, working with companies around the world.
