A Day In The Life of James Vessell
Meet James Vessell, a 21 year old dancer from Pontiac, Michigan. This summer, he attended both the Ballet (for seven weeks) & Jazz (for three weeks) intensives on full tuition scholarships. You can take a look into his process of being a part of learning and performing excerpts of Gerald Arpino's Light Rain as well as Middle Ground with choreography by Shawn Hounsell and music by Mathew Adkins. He says about the Summer Intensive, "These past weeks have been very emotional. The Joffrey Ballet School has made me stronger as a person. This experience has helped me become better at what I love to do."
