Artist Profile

WENDY M ELLIS

Artist's Statement
I am a San Antonio dance educator and choreographer that yearns to provide young energetic dancers an opportunity to develop artistic excellence in dance as an art form. In the past, arts programs were valued and funded at the local, state and federal levels. But over time due to budget cuts and the shift towards privatization of funding, I have witnessed the performing arts becoming less important in our community. The absence of quality training that develop our young dancers to become professionals effects their future endeavors. There is gap in the development of young artists as they advance towards their professional goals. My knowledge, experience and dance works would provide the opportunity for these young artist to gain knowledge, creativity, professionalism and excellence. There is a high desire, a need and willingness from our community to allow these artists the opportunity to develop their skills and discipline in a professional company. Our community has an ample amount of young talent. I would like to give possibilities to our diverse youth by starting a professional dance company, AlignDance Theatre.

Movement should be approached like life. Life should be about movement.
