Alma Dance Theater is a female-centric performing group, created and directed by Miami native choreographer Marissa Alma Nick, and voted BEST DANCE COMPANY of 2018 in the Miami New Times. Taking on millennial-fem social issues through dance, this girly gang of rebels unapologetically reveals their mind, body, and soul to you in a way that makes YOU feel seen. The company was deemed "provocative, intelligent & unexpected" by the Miami New Times, as "a sheer force of nature that will leave you wanting more" by The Herald and as "the freshest dance troupe in Miami" by the Huffington Post Miami.
