It is hard to pick just one favourite moment in my career, but I wanted to share with you one of the moments in the past year that ranks as one of the top 3 for me. This year that Kinetic Elements performed at FAT: Fashion Alternative week in Toronto. The atmosphere was incredible. The crowd was packed, the music was blaring – you could feel the vibration in your bones and I got to walk down the runway! It was an amazing experience!

Thank you to FAT for having us and a huge thank you to all the dancers that brought their wonderful talent to this event.

Eye Weekly Reviews
“…even I can appreciate Kinetic Elements’ skill and artistry – including Kendra Hughes’ choreography, which contrasts jerk, robotic gestures with graceful, sweeping motions.”

Merge Zine added that we are refreshing.

Here are some shots that we took during our tech rehearsal on Monday for Eternal Eclipse. It was so wonderful to see all the pieces on a stage with lights and sound. What an experience. I am looking forward to our opening and hope to see you there!
