XY DANCE PROJECT was established in 2016 under the direction of Nijawwon Matthews. XY DANCE PROJECT has been fortunate to perform in many theaters throughout the tristate.

Celeste Lanuza Dance Theater was founded during a completion of an MFA in Choreography from University of California Irvine under the choreographic mentorship of Donald McKayle. Ms. Lanuza combines her original musical composition with a live instrumentation of Latin Jazz sounds with interdisciplinary musicians and dancers. Story telling works are important to her and in this work entitled Camino Al Alma (Journey to the Soul), the Latinx experience is represented through living in between mental and physical borders overcoming discrimination and sense of seclusion.
