Nozama Dance Collective is a supportive community comprised of twelve women ages 23-29. Artistic Directors Gracie Novikoff and Natalie Schiera are the primary choreographers, but they also act as mentors for four company members who also choreograph. The choreographic process begins with a concept, which stems from a personal female experience, paired with music that complements the emotional quality. Gracie and Natalie develop phrases that are transformed with the collaboration of the dancers to create a cohesive, personal, powerful story on the female experience. Of late, our work has been inspired by the 2016 Presidential Election; “Enough” (2018) encapsulates how the news coverage of the Election and events afterwards instilled fear that sparked a movement for women to rise together to protect their liberties. 

Outside of rehearsals, Nozama Dance Collective has two collaborations that center around female empowerment and a supportive community. Since 2017, Nozama has partnered with the Big Sisters Association, teaching movement workshops to Big Sisters (ages 21+) and their Little Sisters (ages 8-13). Each workshop is designed to empower preteen girls—who are at a pivotal and impressionable age—by using dance to express themes of girl power, positive body image, and healthy female friendships. Additionally, Nozama has partnered with Jennifer Kuhnberg of OnStage Dance Company to create “Empower One Another,” a performance partnership in which companies are paired to collaborate and create new works based on their shared insight. This performance is set for April 2019.

With this fundraiser, we hope to keep partnering with companies that value our mission and bringing innovative, modern dance to the public!
