Her choreography has been presented and supported through residencies and fellowships across the country including Basin Arts Center and the School for Contemporary Dance Thought. Her award-winning writing has appeared in several literary and academic journals including The Maine Review, The Briar Cliff Review, Conversations Across the Field of Dance Studies, and others. Lass has taught a wide range of dance courses, all highly interdisciplinary, including all levels of contemporary technique, composition, choreography, dance history and theory, dance condition/injury prevention, and ballet from a somatic perspective.
