Luca-Andrea Lino Tessarini

the most exciting part about dance, for me – and especially in this house – is the never ending, never failing learning process around it. there is not a day that ends, where I feel like I have not faced an erudition of some sort. be it by our staff, the many guest teachers and choreographers that grace our floors in and out, our technicians and or (most definitely) my incredible colleagues of NDT 1 & 2. nothing, in my years here, has turned out to be the way I thought it would, and I can not wait to look back at all the unexpectedness yet to happen. – Luca
