I’m Vicki Crain, a writer based in Chicago, IL. I’m a former dancer, teacher, receptionist, hostess, bartender, office manager, marketing manager, dance captain…oh, and a life-long Bears fan. I got my B.A. in English while teaching and performing. For the last 15 years, I’ve written for many publications and worked for The Joffrey Ballet. I’m something of an arts unicorn – writer, marketing and editorial consultant, project manager, and publisher. My passion is dance (read: ballet nerd). You can likely find me in the lobby during intermission at a performance with a glass of Chardonnay in hand. Come say hi; let’s chat!

Dance Writing

Dance writer? Is that an actual job? Yep. 
Like a dance, my path getting here was full of twists and turns.
