What My Teacher Taught Me: Meredith Fages

After joining Heidi Latsky Dance in 2007, Meredith Fages expanded her dynamic range as a performer under Latsky's mentorship.


"When we first started working together, she said to me, 'Meredith, you have training coming out of your ears. I'm going to help you do something with it. I may not be able to make you rich, but I'm going to make you better.' And she has in every possible way. The ferociousness with which I approach movement or the quietude, stillness and vulnerability, if that's what's required—she has helped me with all of those tools. I have a richer creative toolbox for having worked with her."

Heidi Latsky is the artistic director of Heidi Latsky Dance, a New York City–based physically integrated dance company founded in 2001. Latsky danced with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, 1987–1993.

See Heidi Latsky Dance at Hearst Plaza in New York City, Saturday, July 29 at 6 pm, as part of the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival.
