In 2012 FLY Dance Company returned to the Houston scene under the partnership of Jorge Casco, Chris Cortez, Don Lee Rivera and Adam Quiroz. FLY is currently represented by ECE Touring, the largest talent agency in North America and is advised by world renowned choreographer/legend Rennie Lorenzo Harris. FLY will be embarking on a US tour later this year. FLY is also partnering with the US Embassy to take their programs and concerts overseas. FLY is excited to announce their 20th anniversary this year with the return of Kathy Wood as Artistic Director and will be presenting new work in September.
As well as inspiring the youth with its educational shows through its brother company Houston Healthy Hip Hop, founded by Chris Cortez (FLY Director), HHH also provides after school programs in over 10 school districts inside and outside the Houston area. The HHH staff includes members of FLY Dance Company and is a training ground to build passionate instructors and performers. FLY Kids has also been introduced to FLY’s dance and performance training program for younger students. This program focuses on building confidence, teamwork, teaches positive values and provides a positive environment to help them succeed in the performing arts. Students are also eligible to audition for FLY Dance Company after completing this program and graduating from school. This performing group is invited to perform alongside FLY Dance Company at special events throughout the city.
