Jessica Lang Dance (NextMove Dance): Simply beautiful and vocal
REVIEW by Eri Yoneda, phindie, April 7, 2017
Referenced works:


“Lang's choreographies, and the movement of her dancers, give the impression of being settling and modest. The dancers do not show hyper extensive kick or superhuman movements. They keep their
bodies and arms in the correct positions of classical ballet and do not skip even small steps and bourrĂ©e in between their movements. This dedication to and appreciation of the basic rules and details of ballet support a clean and beautiful dance style and allow Lang's dancers to be direct and vocal in expressing the music, the stories, and the emotions.”
