My x-boyfriend and I sat in my New York studio apartment with papers all over our floor and the idea to start a dance company. Having both come from rather studious institutions we desired exploration.
In 2019 I convinced my dad to let us host a residency with four other artists. We drove every day to a local dance studio and formatted the residency so that everyone was both a leader and a collaborator. We had our first show "Is this an experiment" in the summer of 2019.
In 2020 I graduated from school and gave more time to Hive. I expanded our offerings into classes and intensives and we successfully hosted our first 2-day creative immersion in December.
In 2020 we also made our first evening-length dance piece Sonic Gates and I started my career as a creative coach, working with over 14 individuals throughout the year.
In January 2021 we upped our production game and created our first film "Seek" along with rebranding our ascetic and producing our first out-of-town artist, Treyden Chilliaravoti to make a film project in April.
Now we look forward to expanding our community through educational and mentoring opportunities along with commissioning various up and coming artists from across the world.
Our mission is to support the next generation of creative leaders. Through commissions, mentorship, education, and residencies we are dedicated to providing platforms and education to push, connect, and inspire the next wave of creative possibility.
We are committed to providing financial aid for all of our classes, shows, and intensives.
We are committed to creating special opportunities for the youth to learn and share their creations.
We are committed to paying all our artists we hire.
We are committed to prioritizing mental, physical, and spiritual health.
We are committed to doing everything in our power to free the creative minds of tomorrow and inspire them to use their voice, and for lack of a better term, make shit happen.
