An Interview with Jessica Jone, Artistic Director at Lorita Leung Dance Company
Ross Michael Pink
R M Pink: How would you describe your early dance training?
Jessica: I began my training at the age of 4 under the tutelage of my mother, Lorita Leung. She started her dance academy in the basement of our family home, and I have early memories of sneaking downstairs when I was very young and watching her teach her students.

Reviewer Michael Pink
The opening featured a video with the lead dancers, Calvadores and White in various dance movements on a beach and in a forest. The sky was always cloudy and the music somewhat muted and even sad. This set the tone for an emotional dance experience that calls upon the audience to reflect on the theme presented of human connection which is increasingly lost in the impersonal social media age. It was effective. Full review
