As a dancer, Atria West 86 resident Vance R. rubbed elbows (or was it feet?) with some of theater’s most elite performers. He also modeled for Revlon and the Art Students League of New York, and danced in off-Broadway shows and in the Catskills at the legendary Grossinger’s Resort.

Vance is an active member of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Opera. His favorite operas include Wagner’s The Ring Cycle and Verdi’s Aida. His secret to longevity? Believing in himself.
