Lamondance season 9 was a very significant year for me. I really felt myself rediscover my love of Dance and reinvent who I am as an artist. I’ve gained a valuable toolbox from all of the teachers and guest choreographers, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to use these tools to grow even further in the season to come.

Lamondance was such an amazing experience. When I started, I had no idea what I was going to get or if it was even going to be worth it. Lamon surpassed all my expectations and more. From the amazing family environment to the consistent care and training from all the teachers, to the incredible people sharing the room with me. I learnt so much as a dancer, as well as growing as a person. Learning how to cope with the many ups and downs that come with such a fast-paced environment, I learnt how to take care of myself and not let any issues stand in the way of my training, which is something you have to learn early on in the career. I am so happy that Lamon became part of my journey, and I am so looking forward to season 10.

The work of the company is really incredible, Lamondance is a very good program for dancers, I have no words to describe how good this work was. All the classes, workshops, shows, extras, everything was a very good demonstration of how the work of being part of a dance company is. And another thing is how incredible it was to make people from so many different places come together, this is (should be) a fantastic opportunity to experience and learn a lot, about human, about culture, and of course, professionalism. So it is very important to be a professional at all times in this place, with all people, in every single moment. For me, this was strong resistance, so this made me stronger, and I am sure I will have more breath to continue my journey in search of art and dance!

Lamondance was the best dance experience of my life; I found a new home with everything I needed. I had great people around me, different bodies with different movements, different cultures sharing the same love for the art of dance.
Lamondance is not just a training program, is the real experience like working for a professional dance company; My training with Lamon helped me to be more aware of who I am and the possibilities of adapting myself as an artist, the company helped me to be the artist that I am today, all because of the dedication and passion from all the teachers as well from the extraordinary choreographers
that I also enjoyed working learning and sharing the room with them.
I can’t forget to mention our mentorship through our fantastic Artistic Director he’s the greatest choreographer and human. Thank you for the opportunity and for supporting us during the season. I lived the best days of my life with Lamondance
