Neta-Kinetics is a contemporary street dance company formed in 2022, following the lineage of Cricket (James Colter)'s Concept Kinetics formed in 2019. Following Cricket's departure from New York, company members who have trained under Cricket work collectively to produce dance theater for the stage, primarily led by one of Cricket's longtime trainees Marianna Koytsan.
Neta-Kinetics combines rigorous training in house, breaking, hip-hop, and other street dance forms with a playful and theatrical sensibility to produce dynamic works for the stage. We seek to build intensely physical, character-based worlds that weave in the diverse movement backgrounds of our group while keeping the integrity of street styles a primary focus of the work. Some members of the company specialize in postmodern dance, some in breaking, some in hip hop choreography, and some in waacking. All are encouraged to bring their unique backgrounds to the creation of collective material, fostering individuality rather than uniformity.

Tec Dance Company
Slaves of Fear
Tec Dance Company is based at Tec de Monterrey, one of Latin America’s most prestigious institutions. Initiating in 1980, the company has since evolved, now boasting a high quality dance program as well as dance scholarship opportunities. Many of our alumni have succeeded as professional performers. “Slaves of Fear” explores how fear moves us and how it can take over our lives. Fear is a good tool for survival, but it also has the ability to freeze and prevent us from moving forward, it can be contagious and claustrophobic. “In-dwell” touches upon the unbreakable female spirit, the strength it takes to be woman and how a woman can exist or reside as an inner activating spirit or force in oneself and others.
