Black Grace, a dance troupe of Pacific Islander and Maori performers, mixes traditional and contemporary dance styles to dazzle audiences with unexpected fluidity and elegance. What started as a male-only group founded in a small town of New Zealand and directed by Neil Ieremia, Black Grace has become a well-traveled company that performs all over the world.
Meet Neil and his dancers, who have moved beyond their roots to explore the traditions of New Zealand culture in a modern and ever-changing landscape and have risen to the pinnacle of the international dance world.
