Vanessa Gibson is the owner and artistic director of Eagles Landing Dance Center and is the mother of 2 children. She began her dance training at the tender age of 5 at Jacobs School of Dance in Atlanta, GA. She began her professional career in dance as an Atlanta Braves Baseball Kid, dancing in front of thousands of baseball fans. However, her Big Break came when she was chosen to tour with the comedy stage play “Beauty Shop” for two years, which eventually lead her to Los Angeles, CA.
Her ultimate dream began within three months of being in L.A., dancing in a movie “Stompin’ At The Savoy.” This movie was directed and choreographed by none other than the person she idolized the most, Debbie Allen. How much more could you ask for in such a short time? Vanessa has performed with the likes of LL Cool J, Prince, Tamia, Will Smith, Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige and many more. She was also in the movie “Fighting Temptations” alongside Beyonce. She has appeared in numerous industrial videos, movies and award shows.
Now you can catch her as the director for Eagles Landing Dance Center. For over 12 years, she has been helping to transform ELDC dancers into being the best that they can be and preparing them for the next phase of their lives. For the last 3 years, Vanessa has also managed to work with Debbie Allen as the administrator of the DADA Summer Intensive Program in Atlanta.
Vanessa Gibson has pretty much dedicated her entire life to this wonderful art form called DANCE!
