Hailed by The New York Times as “inventive . . . a ready for primetime knockout” and by The New Yorker as “ambitious . . . expansive, and dynamic, ” Emery LeCrone continues to be an imaginative and impressive choreographer of her generation.

Ms. LeCrone is a 2016 Joyce Theater Creative resident, a 2012 New York City Center Choreography Fellow, a 2011 New York City Ballet New York Choreographic Institute choreographer, and a 2010 Jerome Robbins Foundation’s New Essential Works (NEW) Grant awardee.

In 2013, Ms. LeCrone founded her own company Emery LeCrone DANCE with the goal of providing a home for the creation of her new works and the preservation of her past repertory. Since then, The Joyce Theater, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Emelin Dance Theater, and Beach Sessions Dance Series have all presented her work. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s esteemed Works & Process series has twice commissioned evenings of Ms. LeCrone’s choreography and The Joyce Theatre’s Ballet Festival has presented the company in two full-length evenings featuring over 30 artists.

Ms. LeCrone has choreographed for a number of regional ballet companies, presented and participated in many successful dance festivals and was choreographer in residence at numerous prominent universities and schools. In 2017 her work internationally debuted in Osaka, Japan. Currently, Ms. LeCrone resides in New York where she continues to choreograph and perform as a professional dancer with The Metropolitan Opera.
