Alyson Laury, a native of Sparta, NJ, graduated Cum Laude from Point Park University with a B.F.A degree in dance, with a concentration in modern and jazz, and a minor in Mass Communications. She began her training with Nancy Volpe and went on to study at Interlochen Arts Academy for four years. In 2011 Alyson received a grant from the Puffin Foundation LTD to choreograph and produce her own show. Alyson was then privileged to put on a full-length dance concert at the New Hazlett Theater in Pittsburgh in May 2012, with all ticket proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Alyson formed Alyson Laury Dance Co. in 2012. Her work focuses on the athleticism and fluidity of dancers, requiring a strong technical foundation and modern base. Since relocating to New York City, Alyson Laury Dance Co. received a second grant from the Puffin Foundation LTD in 2013. Alyson has had her works performed at Dance New Amsterdam, Peridance Salvatore Capezio Theater, Ridgewood High School, Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, Young Choreographer’s Festival at Symphony Space, Dance Teacher Summit, Dixon Place, Dumbo Dance Festival, The Hatch Presenting Series, and PMT Fall Showcase. With funding provided from the Puffin Foundation LTD and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Alyson and company are thrilled to announce they will have their first full season 2014-2015!
