The Hubbard Collective, founded by artistic director Irishia Hubbard, is a modern fusion dance company based in Southern California. With our diverse cast and multidisciplinary aesthetic, we are able to produce works that engage audiences from all walks of life. From complex political concert pieces to high energy commercial jazz performances, we strive to showcase our range and ability to cross between multiple dance forms. Our mission is to create pieces that challenge the audience's perception of dance by combining strong musicality, narrative, and performance.
The festival culminated with Irishia Hubbard’s Southern-rooted study of the body politic in Sacred Matters, where history and unrelenting hope swirled against a gratifying soundtrack by Wynton Marsalis. As all 13 dancers raised their arms in a fortifying gesture of unification, the message of dance as a beacon for social change became resoundingly clear and undeniably relevant." - Ninette Paloma
