CHOREOGRAPHER | EDUCATOR | CREATIVE | DIRECTOR
“It is a cathartic experience when you surrender yourself to dance. It is the only time I feel truly free, honest, and liberated."
- Dana Jolly
"Dana Jolly is the choreographer I invariably turn to first.
Her work has great versatility and wit. Her choreography always serves the piece and the story, rather than striving to be impressive for its own sake. She works brilliantly with performers - both with experienced dancers and, unusually, with singer/actors who can barely move - she makes them look good and find skills they didn't know they possessed. Dana is knowledgeable about all styles and genres. She is a tireless worker and a generous, invaluable collaborator."
- Rodger Hodgman
"I was lucky enough to work with Dana from quite early on in my career, where she helped me in so many ways, with such kindness, passion and professional expertise. I am very grateful in particular, for the time she spent working with me on my tap dancing in preparation for the role of Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street. Her patience, guidance, and teachings helped me immensely, giving me the confidence I needed to play the role. I am so grateful to you."
