Since 2001, it has been Zoetic’s mission to promote female empowerment and feminism through dance. This goal continues to drive the company in our efforts to create inclusive performance platforms for a diverse group of dance artists. Through our initiative to present our MIXTAPE dance festival, Zoetic is passionate to explore opportunities for the expression of varying feminine perspectives encompassing women and members of the LGBTQ+ communities. It is our belief that by providing platforms for artists to create and share work through our mission of celebrating the feminine spirit, we are helping to enrich our community’s cultural landscape and raising awareness of the issues facing women and others marginalized based on gender-identity. MIXTAPE is a movement towards promoting positive change and uplighting the powerful voices of inclusivity, equality and strength.
