JWN #32 Crystal Wellman
Crystal Wellman is a classically trained professional dancer who’s been dancing her entire life. Her persistent need to create art has led to the formation of the Unbound Ballet Project & Collective, which was conceived as a way to collaborate with other dancers during their off season to explore new and daring artistic expressions custom tailored to unique spaces where dance is not usually performed at this level.
On this episode we discuss her creative background as well her next project, which she has organized with three other choreographers combining modern dance and ballet styles. Using the opportunity to create without financial compensation, the dancers are performing two free shows at Tradesman Brewery in Charleston, SC with the hopes of bringing the dance to more safe venues in the area.
