Niad Dance Company is based in Greenville, SC. Directed by Jaidra DuRant, the niad dance company, student, and apprentice performers are dedicated to creating and performing high quality transnational fusion dance that pays homage to the roots of bellydance while exploring creative and artistic wings that this beautiful artform allows.
Jaidra grew up in the theater, performing on camera before she could walk and on stage shortly after. Returning to her roots, for Jaidra, means musical theater and all the drama and excitement that entails. The piece that the niaddance company and apprentice program dancers will be performing for this year's Bloom is an original theatrical fusion piece choreographed by Jaidra, and inspired by the concept of a 1920's chorus girl who just so happens to be a spy. This dance is the cat's meow, the bee's knees, and certainly, the snake's hipssss.
