Follow: Purchase Dancers on Dance Fashion

DanceSpirit Magazine raves about @issadancelook Instagram by Joy Marie Thompson ’18 and Dava Huesca ’19.

An Instagram account @issadancelook, begun by Joy-Marie Thompson ’18 last January and maintained now by Dava Huesca ’19 since Thompson graduated, grabbed the attention of DanceSpirit Magazine last #FollowFriday

“Clearly, Purchase attracts students who apply creativity to every part of their lives,” Helen Rolfe writes. 


She continues, “But what’s really hooked followers like yours truly are the fantastic captions replete with dancer humor, excellent emoji use, and fascinating backstories behind the clothing pieces that make up dancers’ in-studio wardrobes.“

And By the Way

On Sunday, July 22,  Tongue Tied Shrews, a short film created by and featuring Thompson and fellow dancer Sherah Shipman ’19, was featured at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Dance on Camera Festival 2018. 

Thompson was also a winner of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence.
