Filmed at Ignite Ames
Valerie Williams loves to move. Her energy and sensitivity to the audience let her dance in a way that is highly expressive and delightfully clear. As a much sought after residency artist, she communicates not only the discipline but the joy of dance as well. As artistic director of Co'Motion Dance Theater, she choreographs, produces concerts and pays dancers for their work. She also performs with Musica Antiqua, reconstructing and performing dances of the Renaissance and Middle Ages.
