Personal Statement
I enjoy the unique quality that is involved in
LADPs style. The distinct details and intricate
partnering that goes into their pieces displays a
different style of contemporary that I dont see
very often. From taking class with Nathan and
learning his movement, I have found that his style
relates back to the style that LADP expresses
through their pieces. I would happily join their
company because I think their style is innovative
and gives not only the audience but the dancer a
different perspective on movement as a whole.
