Antipode was originally founded in 2006. The eccentric dance group has combined their love of video game/nerd culture with their love of belly dancing to create a unique form of dance known as geeky bellydance. Antipode performs throughout the year at numerous conventions along the East Coast.
The group is primarily made up of five dancers. Co-directors Ayla, the choreographer, and Merika, the costumer, are joined by members Kaiya, Linwe, and Termariel. Though primarily the five, Antipode has had multiple guest dancers grace their shows.
Fusing the theatrics of acting with a mix of cosplay, pop-culture, and off-beat humor Antipode brings the audience not just dance, but full geek entertainment.
