With more than 75 works to her credit for some of the most prestigious dance companies in the world, Jessica Lang is a rising star.
This year Jessica Lang was the recipient of the Bessie Award in recognition for the elegant works created on her newly formed company of dancers at the Joyce Theater in her transition from freelance choreographer to artistic director.

Bessie Schoenberg forever changed my life.”
– Jessica Lang
