RIOULT Dance NY supports the creation and performance of the choreographic works of Pascal Rioult, and provides the community with an accessible and affordable center for dance and enrichment through the arts.


Think Tank is a work shop based company created by Adam Wedesky (AcousticaElectronica, ArtsForAlz) and Taylor DeNapoli (West Side Story Orpheum Theatre, Wonderland Natl Tour), designed to be an open, positive, affordable environment in which the choreographer has an hour and a half to play with the dancers who walk in the room. "Think Tank is a safe place to escape from reality to create, learn, grow, explore and breathe," says Taylor, "every human needs their own safe haven, Think Tank has become mine."


Adam and Taylor encourage the choreographers to bring in something they're workshopping and use their time in the space to flesh it out and create something new. "My favorite thing to watch is how the choreographer communicates their ideas to the dancers in the room," says Adam, "when they've come up with a story and it comes to life, its a magical moment." Throughout each class Adam and Taylor will film and edit a video together to commemorate the moment shared between mutual friends and artists.
