Dancer Spotlight: Eliza Weekley

Q&A with Eliza Weekley!


CRB: What's been the most challenging/fun part of the rehearsal processes?

Eliza Weekley: They're all so different and challenging it's hard to choose. But if I had to pick just one, I would go with Tenley Dickey's piece. Her choreography is just so quick and nuanced but also very musical so it is hard to pick up and make look good but once you start to get into the groove of it, it is very rewarding and fun to dance!


CRB: Personally, what's been the most rewarding part of this process?

Eliza Weekley: Getting to work with, and dance alongside, all of these wonderful dancers & choreographers. I know this sounds very Cliché, but it's true. This is my first time dancing with CRB and I was a little caught off guard by how friendly and welcoming everyone was.


CRB: Why should someone see and support CRB?

Eliza Weekley: We're different. It's not everyday that you get to see dancers do pirouettes in pointe shoes and then watch them proceed to roll around on the ground in the exact same piece.
