The mission of 10 Hairy Legs is to advance the understanding of the male role in dance through the creation, acquisition and performance of exceptional work.
 
 
   

 
   

Our Education Programs advance the understanding of dance as an art form. As an all-male company, we provide a unique perspective that encourages meaningful dialogues about the male role in dance, gender roles in today's society, and stereotypes - in a stimulating, positive and encouraging learning environment.

Designed to enhance physical, social, and emotional development, we serve a diverse range of participants from enthusiast to novice beginner to the pre-professional, experienced dancer. Our Teaching Artists engage participants' creativity and address important life skills such as discipline, collaboration, and critical thinking. Our active dance programs incorporate 10 Hairy Legs' repertory of Randy James and our Artistic Collaborators for lessons in technique, performance skills, and creative process. Participants who attend Public Schools leave our programs having accomplished personal and group learning objectives related to the NJCCC & NDEO Standards.

Our In-School performances provide an exceptional dance experience for one class or your entire school population performed by our professional artists.

If you are interested in bringing 10 Hairy Legs to your location, please review our many program offerings. For more information, or to book 10 Hairy Legs in your school, studio or theater, please contact Elizabeth Shaff Sobo, Executive Director.

Joe MonteleoneJoe Monteleone, the “Andy Warhol of modern dance” (The Moving Beauty Series) is “A one-man-band soloist and choreographer who mixes his own music, video art, records monologues, and controls his own lighting - the rare control freak who can do it all and come out with a dazzlingly realized project” (Huffington Post).  His multimedia solo work and company (Monteleone Dance) have been presented extensively in New York City, nationally and internationally to great acclaim, listed in the Huffington Post’s “Best Dance Performances of 2017”. Joe is at the forefront of movement invention with his “Extraordinary . . . confined explosive physical force and motion-filled movement variety” (Critical Dance), a hyper-dexterous movement vocabulary that illustrates Maya, the world of forms and illusion. “Far and away the most moving and meticulous dancer”(Phoenix New Times), Joe incorporates this cutting-edge movement style with his prose, sound design, and multimedia worlds to create cerebral dance theatre.

She studied under professors Randy James, Reagan Wood, John Evans, Sherrie Alban, Paulette Sears, Kimani Fowlin, Jeff Friedman and Christian Von Howard.

Jessica’s goal as an instructor is to not dictate but to guide her students into finding their individuality through the form of movement. With her strong background in Modern, Improvisation and Choreography she believes that the connection and combination of learned technique with learned improvisational movement is a formula for a well rounded, individual dancer. She believes that the most successful dancers and artists are those who can share real dance experiences with their students. Jessica encourages her students to work hard, be kind, seek out the real world of dance and challenge themselves everyday inside and outside the studio.
