Kizuna Dance

Kizuna Dance is a NYC-based contemporary dance company founded by Artistic Director Cameron McKinney. The mission of the company is to depict aspects of Japanese history and culture through the use of a unique blend of hip-hop, house, and contemporary movements. Kizuna Dance offers the dance community a new and unique approach to cross-cultural productions, bringing relatively little-known parts of a well-known culture through the median of hip-hop vocabulary. This aims to connect the mysterious Japanese culture with movement that is more recognizable and piques audiences' interest in the culture.

Kizuna Dance works blend elements of breaking, house and lofting, lindy hop swing, popping, and waving with modern sensibilities. Artistic Director Cameron McKinney brings his dynamic and idiosyncratic movements to the works, making them resonate with physicality, humanity, humor, and intricacy.

Since the company moved to NYC in June 2014, it has performed at The Series (The Moving Beauty Series), The Ailey Citigroup Theater, Dixon Place (Under Exposed), Triskelion Arts (CollabFest & Never Before, Never Again), Spokethehub (Winter Follies), Sans Limites Dance/WASTELAND, RAW:Brooklyn presents SCOPE, Ready or Not, Movement Research Open Performance Series. The company has been in residence at Northstar Dance Academy (Hartford, CT) and at Dancin' on the Edge Studio (Trenton, NJ). Kizuna Dance made its international debut with a solo by Artistic Director Cameron McKinney in May 2015 in Leicester, UK at the Let's Dance International Frontiers Festival, where he will be premiering another new work in 2016. The company will make its ensemble international debut at the Performatica International Dance Forum in Puebla, Mexico in April 2016.
