Lily Marcus

Teaching Artist
Lily is from Tallahassee, Florida, where she quickly fell in love with dance at a young age. She’s trained in multiple forms of dance, such as ballet, contemporary, modern, jazz, musical theatre, hip hop, and tap. Lily moved to Lafayette in 2017 to major in Dance and Performing Arts at the University of Louisiana, at Lafayette, where she began her serious dance training and professional career. Along with several performances at the university, some of Lily’s most notable works include Gina Aswell’s “Every Place We Ever Lived” and a community performance of Ronald K. Brown’s “Walking Out the Dark”. After participating in Ronald K. Brown’s work, Lily traveled to New York City to study for two weeks at the Evidence Summer Intensive. Here, she took classes in Contemporary, Hip-Hop, and West African. Since graduating from UL, Lily has been teaching at dance studios all over the Acadiana area, and is now a Teaching Artist with the Acadiana Center for the Arts P.A.C.E. program. Lily hopes to someday go back to New York to take class, perform, and hone her teaching skills.
