Gadfly focuses on studying, researching and creating movement at the junction where urban dance, jazz and contemporary styles collide and tune together.
Artistic Directors Ofilio Portillo and Apolonia Velasquez merge art with entertainment in contemporary urban dancing, which breathes with a spontaneity found only in urban dance culture. Portillo and Velasquez are captivating dancers, maverick choreographers, and most of all passionate professionals.
Collectively, they are committed to increasing the visibility of street dances and educating the masses about the importance of being a Gadfly: be unique, dare to question the established standards and innovate.
In partnership with FROSTival Fredericton.
