I studied ballet at the Academy of Dance in San Luis Obispo, The Academy of Ballet in San Francisco, Boston Ballet Summer Program, Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts, the University of California at Santa Barbara, California, and with Edward Ellison in New York City.
I spent six seasons dancing with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet in New York and had the pleasure of working with many fabulous choreographers.

Music and dance by Vanessa Hylande
Maiden Moon, manifest dreams
As I tread the tender seams
Walkign gently ‘tween dark and light
Carry the torch into the night
Cast away the old from the new
Sew together what follows through
May the seeds of dreams unfurl
As I proudly walk this world
So mote it me, Maiden Moon
The Gypsy Caravan
Written and produced by Vanessa Hylande Performed at Encanto Beach, Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Video by Josef Rios, Digital Riots
The “Gypsy Caravan” takes you on a musical and magical journey through the ancient stories of our ancestors. Medieval and Renaissance songs from Sweden, France and Spain accompany stories of the moon, dreams, love, life, birth and even death. Spend the evening with dragons and mermaids, cast a wish into the wishing well, and enjoy the dancers swirling in colorful patterns under the moonlight.
