Nickerson-Rossi Dance

“Nickerson-Rossi presents “Choreographic Residencies” August 19th! Join us as we bring Chester County some fabulous dance celebrities in the concert dance world. This summer series will feature four highly esteemed artists that will present new repertoire for the community of dancers and enthusiasts. The concept is to enrich and expose the dance community to high art choreographers/directors/dancers. Stephen Agisiloua, Artistic Director of Vertical Shadows is here from Melbourne, Australia. This former choreographer from “So You Think You Can Dance Australia” will premiere a wonderful new work in the United States for the first time! Next we have the amazing, John Lam, Principal Dancer of Boston Ballet! This gorgeous dancer/choreographer is a recipient of “Princess Grace Fellowship” and featured in “Pointe Magazine” Mens Issue, 2005. Mr. Lam will grace us with a contemporary ballet piece. One of Chester County’s local artist, is emerging choreographer, Barry Kerollis. Mr. Kerollis began his dance training at Chester Valley Dance Academy. He began his professional career with Houston Ballet. The following season he joined Pacific Northwest Ballet, where he danced leading and featured roles for seven seasons and worked as a delegate for the American Guild of Musical Artists. Our last featured guest artist is , Lorenzo Pagano. This beauty is the recipient of  “Male Rising Star” award, and soloist of the Martha Graham Dance Company. Mr. Pagano is an Italian native, and world traveler. He will bless the program with an iconic modern dance technique that is not to be missed! Nickerson-Rossi Dance will feature its unforgettable work titled, “Second Skin.” Excitingly, this male duet danced by Lorenzo Pagano, and Nickerson-Rossi’s Principal Dancer, Chad Allen Ortiz, premiered at Teatro Regio ( Royal Theater ) in Torino, Italy in November 2016. “Memory serves us as a “Second Skin.” Familiar, yet newly discovered. Sturdy and sensitive at the same time. This duet reveals the double-sidedness of human minds that contemplate knowing versus the unknown.” DO NOT miss this fabulous program!”
