How does Nick feel about being an AXIS Dancer?
"Being an AXIS dancer is cleansing as it refines one's approach to movement by demanding an attention to subtlety, presence and an awareness of perspective through different bodies."
- Nick Brentley
Nick is a freelance performing artist originally from Silver Spring, MD and a 2014 addition to the AXIS family. Dance and choreography are at the forefront of his crafts, but he also sings, acts and plays a few instruments. Though musical theater was his primary artistic outlet throughout high school, it was afterward at Amherst College where dance became a formal pursuit and ultimately his major. Since then he has performed with dance companies on both US Coasts spanning different genres such as South African, Afro-Caribbean and experimental modern. In addition to being a movement-teaching artist throughout the Bay Area he is the dance captain for the SambaFunk! Carnaval contingent as well as rehearsal & management director for the street dance theater company Embodiment Project. Collectively, his performing career ranges from dinner theater, award ceremonies, parades, internet music videos, short films and beyond.
Nick will be performing during our 2015 Home Season, June 12-14th. http://www.axisdance.org/season/
