"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.

The goal of Nikki Manx Dance Project is to share socially conscious dance that makes people question, and think about important concepts of the human experience. The company upholds their mission of representing dance as a necessity to the New Jersey community, where we strive to enliven the passion surrounding important social issues. This enables our community to question thought-provoking aspects brought to the forefront through innovative movement, text, music, projected media, and live art. In accordance with NMDP's movement, which is driven by a uniquely theatrical and gestural vocabulary, we hope to inspire progressive change in the economic, political, and social infrastructure of our society.
