As a dancer for Eclipse Dance Company, Noel performed in concerts and festivals throughout the Northeast. In developing her company, The Legible Bod(ies), Noel has created a space in which to create original multimedia works based on her personal research. This work has been shown at the Southern VT Dance Festival, HATCH Presenting Series, Boston Contemporary Dance Festival and Art Walk Easthampton/The Mill Arts Project. Her full-length concerts Un/Drowning and The Ballad of Philip Andre have been named “arts Picks” by the Valley Advocate two years running. Through her work, Noel strives to broaden community appreciation for dance by developing uniquely relatable performance art harnessing the individual talents of her performers.
