    Contemporary Guest Teacher

    TUSHRIK FREDERICKS is originally from Johannesburg, South Africa. Growing up he was mostly trained in Hip Hop dancing and specifically found himself attracted towards the style ‘KRUMP’. He graduated from the Peridance Capezio Center Certificate Program in New York City in 2015 where he received most of his formal training. He has had the opportunity to dance with Ate9 dANCEcOMPANY (Danielle Agami, Artistic Director) and has performed works by Milton Myers, Cindy Salgado & Charlotta Ofverholm. Tushrik was an assistant lecturer at The University of the Arts Philadelphia for Sophomore students. Teaching credits include: Gibney Dance Center NY, Broadway Dance Center NY, Peridance Capezio Center New York, Conservatory of Dance SUNY Purchase and Alonzo King Lines Ballet School BFA program San Francisco. Tushrik is currently an artist with Sidra Bell Dance New York but soon he will be closing this chapter and branching off into creating his own work. He is also currently working on a project with Shamel Pitts and Mirelle Martins on a new creation titled BLACK HOLE.

    Artist Statement:
    My work continues to research and push the boundaries of the limits that ‘man’ has placed on himself when it comes to rigor on the body and mind which blurs the fine line between sanity and insanity, thus resulting in a highly physical practice which pushes the limits of the psyche. The practice consists of physical research which pushes durational studies which then informs how my physical being relates to my mental being. My research feels highly sacred as well as spiritual in a way that I relate to the world and all things around and inside of me. I believe that it takes pushing the body to extreme physical boundaries so that we may reach moments of bliss by breaking beyond those boundaries and connecting to our higher purpose or my higher purpose and that is to acknowledge that- “i am the universe. The universe is i. God is the universe. and God is i.”
