Victoria Billington
Point Performing Arts – Assistant Director

I think dance is an unbelievably vulnerable art form. I try to teach my students to really feel what is happening in their body when they move. Art is all about self-discovery. You create an experience, and the experience of creating changes you. Or at least it does for me. I will always  train every student as if they will do this professionally I believe it is important to show my students what its like to embrace what makes them unique and special. Love doing what I done and getting to know such special people of all ages.

Background

Assistant director and competition team director Victoria earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Dance Performance from Missouri State University in 2014. Before she followed her path with dance, Victoria found a love for music and the arts at a young age. She fell in love with music and begged for piano lessons at age 6. This led Victoria on an incredible journey of winning both state and national awards for her piano skills. Her love of music also led her to train her voice. Victoria had the opportunity to sing in several shows/groups around Branson from 2007-2009. She now teaches private lessons in piano and voice professionally at Point. While getting her BFA in dance, Victoria danced in Inertia Dance Company under the direction of Darryl Clark. In 2012, she began her journey with the Springfield Dance Alliance (SDA). Victoria has had many roles in SDA, a non-profit organization aimed to create a dynamic dance community, including being a dancer, choreographer, Education Director, and Organization Manager. In 2014, Victoria debuted as a choreographer for Inertia Dance Company, and continues to choreograph pieces on Missouri State dancers. She has won multiple choreography awards for pieces done at Point, and continues to bring unique and fresh ideas to the stage. She is the choreographer for Parkview High School’s theater department, choreographing musicals such as “Guys and Dolls”, “Catch Me If You Can”, “Pirates of Penzance”, and “Billy Elliot”. Victoria also recently choreographed a unique version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” put on by Drury University.

Improvisation

Improvisation “generating spontaneous movement in the moment” can be a daunting and agonizing prospect for dancer who are used to being told precisely what to perform.  It may be scary at first, but improve is a tool that can alter your relationship to dance completely.

When a dancer comes on stage, he is not just a blank slate… Behind him he has all the decisions he has made in life… You are looking at the person he is, the person who, at this point, he cannot help but be… Exceptional dancers, in my experience, are also exceptional people… people with an attitude toward life, a kind of quest… They know who they are and they show this to you, willingly. Mikhail Baryshnikov
