Esmé Dance Company was founded by Veronica Potter in August 2014. The concept for Esmé was born from recognizing that competition and criticism are only positive when coming from a place of love and acceptance. Esmé is the space for talented, driven dancers to come together in support of each other. In Esmé, we prioritize passion, technical dance ability, and desire to grow. Before all else, we share the common love of dance as an art and means of self-expression.
Esmé is a group of women with different dance backgrounds and experience in varying styles of dance. The company comes together to choreograph and works together to incorporate each individual’s strengths. The culture of Esmé is of the upmost importance. Dancers are encouraged to train hard, perform with emotion, and bring experiences from their lives outside of Esmé to the table as inspiration.
