"Choreographer Nikki Manx likes to tackle social and political themes. Her work is very accessible to audiences that are not necessarily versed in modern dance." -- Stated in an interview by Rob Johnson of the Star Ledger with Avianna Perez, founder of the "Your Move" Dance Festival, of which NMDP has been a participant for 3 years.

My goal as a choreographer is to represent dance as a necessity to the community.
While supporting a movement style that is unrestricted and flows freely,
my dancers simultaneously embody a powerful motivation behind their movement. The company incorporates a theatrical and
vocabulary that enables the community to question social, political and thought-provoking
issues brought to theforefront through movement. In accordance with many of the social issues brought to light by the dancers, we hope to
inspire progressive change in our communities.
