Cherylyn Lavagnino's mission is to create movement that engages an audience by aligning the rigor of ballet with the humanistic performance values of contemporary dance. Her choreography uses the physically limiting state of dancing "en pointe" as a platform to delve into the range of human interaction and emotion. The exaggerated classical ballet form is directed to express sensitive and honest portrayals by her dancers. Music is paramount to Lavagnino's creative process, and its influence pushes and prods her imagery.


Triptych (2012), links two distinct movements featuring Francois Couperin's Troisième Leçons à deux voix with commissioned music by Scott Killian. Inspired by the distinct qualities of these scores, Lavagnino has developed a movement lexicon with a sense of quiet beauty, reverence, and sorrow.

Ru (2014), is a contemporary ballet conceived and directed by Cherylyn Lavagnino in collaboration with composer Scott Killian. Inspired by Kim Thúy's novella of the same title, Ru describes a young woman's life as a political refugee. The choreography draws its emotional tone from the girl's struggles for identity resulting from her cultural dislocation.  The dancers move inside a shadowy landscape with movement suggestive of the contrast between struggle and grace, stoicism and despair.

Will (2009), is a work in which an angular, taut movement vocabulary explores the uncompromising aspects of ourselves that extend to our most personal relationships. The plaintive and dissonant original score for a solo violin, composed by violinist Jane Chung, builds on the dancers' unnerving sense of detachment. Ultimately, we recognize that the conflict will not be resolved, yet the isolation of this impasse is eerily harmonious.

Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance has been presented for seven seasons by Danspace Project in St. Mark's Church. The company has performed at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center, Dance Now/NYC Festival, The Joyce Theater's Evening Stars series in Battery Park, Symphony Space's Dance Sampler, the Field's Uptown/Downtown workshop and performance series and three times at Inside/Out at Jacob's Pillow.
