Vic’s 35-year history in the performing arts makes him a valuable team member of any performing arts organization. He currently serves as the Associate Producing Director of The John W. Engeman Theater at Northport, Long Island’s only year round Equity Theater, where he directed and choreographed their inaugural production of Smokey Joe’s Café. Vic is also currently on the faculty of The Ailey School and The Ailey Extension in New York City and has taught for The Metropolitan Opera Guild, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and The Harkness Dance Center.
As an accomplished SDC Stage Director, Choreographer and Fight Choreographer Vic’s work has taken him throughout the United Sates, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Central and South America and The Far East. He has performed, directed and choreographed in every imaginable venue and is comfortable in the role of Director, Choreographer or both. This ability to flow between positions gives him a unique perspective of the challenges faced when mounting Broadway-style productions and makes him an invaluable member of any creative team.
Vic has been a teacher of professional dancers for over 16 years and realized that many actors have limited facility with their physical instrument and many dancers have limited access to their emotional-life when on stage. As both a classically trained actor and an accomplished dancer, he has created techniques that blend the two art forms in ways that are rarely seen in the industry or in the classroom. During Vic’s career he came to realize that when studying their craft, performing artists must be given the opportunity to develop physical and emotional skills at the same time in a nurturing yet disciplined environment.
