About the Artist

Reaction Dance Company NYC (RXN) was founded in 2014 by Artistic Director Juliette Nieves, a graduate of Pace University’s dance program and awardee of both research and entrepreneurship grants for the creation of RXN.

RXN’s mission is to challenge the boundaries between dance styles and change audiences’ perception of cultural dances. They fuse Bollywood, Latin, Hip Hop, Contemporary, and Jazz dance styles to represent New York City’s cultural diversity. Transforming NYC’s multiplicity into innovative performance art, they embody the unique individual neighborhoods of New York as well as the melting pot of characters that reside there.

The company offers custom performances, dance for video, lessons, and school assemblies for a variety of venues and events. Some of their most notable performances have been for Dance The World Nutcracker Festival 2015, New York's Got Talent 2015, NYC Holi Hai 2015, Go Butler’s Ad Campaign “Flashmob Fail”, and Culture Fest at Pace University.
