Nadia Lumley by Daniel Pincus/Oliver Page 2009

Nadia has been a performer ever since she can remember. She gained a BA (Hons) from the University of Warwick, where she studied Theatre and Performance.  Since finishing her degree nearly two years ago, Nadia has performed at the National Theatre (UK) with Upswing Aerial and has had the opportunity to travel to some truly incredible places, performing at festivals like Cherbourg’s International Circus showcase; La Breche, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Clonmel Junction in Ireland, and is hugely excited about the opportunity to dance at the Joyce Soho this summer.  Other dance and performance credits include: Dancing with BBC’s Blue Peter, UK,  a viral for the BBC’s production of So You Think You Can Dance, UK., Jay-Z’s music video Forever Young, Maverick TV’s Make Me A Grown Up, UK.

Nadia is incredibly grateful for the opportunities that have so far allowed her to fuse her passions; acting, movement and breaking, and is constantly humbled by the people she meets along her journey. Outside of theatre she competes internationally at bboying events all over the globe, and is ever more ambitious as she grows as an artist.

Press Quotes

"The pioneering all female hip-hop group, a fearless coalition of b-girls"
The New Yorker

“Jennifer Weber’s Brooklyn-based Decadancetheatre got things off to a promising start. In The Cage, a world premiere, the four company members balanced their cohesion as a tightly knit unit against individual strengths.”
--Donald Huerta
The London Times


"Ms. Weber is onto something…a performance that is intensely emotional and casually streetwise”
—Jennifer Dunning
The New York Times


“Her leading dancers bring—dare I say?—the feminine mystique to hip-hop. They suspend the expected fierce staccato moves in a matrix of lush fluency and add a dimension of alluring mystery to the form's conventional tough, streetwise attitude.”
--Tobi Tobias,
The Village Voice


“Their unusual blend of hip hop and ballet was so carefully choreographed, it would makes the likes of J-Lo weep”
—Ellie Hargreaves,
The Westmorland Gazette (UK)
