This spring, Valerie will be choreographing for BDL Connects. Broadway Dance Lab has created a new project connecting up-and-coming choreographers with broadway mentors. Valerie will be mentored by Kelly Divine who currently has two shows on Broadway (Come from away, and Escape to Margaritaville). The BDL dancers will consist of students from The Institute of Musical Theatre. Valerie will have one week to create whatever she wants with no pressure of producing a final product.
