Willy Laury was born and raised in Paris, France, where he began his dance training.  He quickly leaped from the Juilliard studios to THE ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATRE stages, traveling the world as a cultural ambassador for 7 seasons.  Willy went onto dance for international companies including MORPHOSES, BALLET X, THE MICHAEL CLARK COMPANY, and most recently INCIDENCE CHOREGRAPHIQUE with select dancers of the OPÉRA NATIONAL DE PARIS.  While dancing and creating alongside Benoit Swan Pouffer on numerous productions, his passion for performing led him to discover acting with Matthew Corzine.  This experience sparked a unique and creative point of view, mixing his personal heritage and a passion for fashion with a multitude of cultures discovered along the way.  Willy speaks of hope, unapologetic individuality, and tolerance through beautiful cinematic movements.  All of this is evident in the wide range of creative work he has produced, which makes it speak loudly and stand out amongst the rest.  Willy's creative point of view is one we should all aspire to.  For him, dance isn't just dance; he sees a universal and fluid base to convey his only message...Kuzen Rufu and world peace. @willylaury
