What Moves You @ Jessica Reidy

When you have creatives around you that are dynamic, thoughtful, and intelligent, it naturally makes you a more inspired artist. That’s how I feel about Jess – she raises the standard. She is uniquely her own, encouraging of ideas, interested in the process, and a powerful mover. I love her genuine nature and humor, and I feel lucky to have her in the Company. I had to ask her to be a part of the “WMY?” project! So, let’s see what’s been moving her…

What Moves You?
“I always find myself drawn to honesty- on stage and in life.  In life I’m pretty fascinated by people that are really fully comfortable with who they are as humans; whatever form that ends up taking. And on stage I love seeing dancers so totally invested in what they are doing that I really believe they are experiencing that moment for the first time.”
