Biography SonKiss’d Dance Theater was founded in January of 2012 by 3 free spirited, professional and energetic dancers with a call on their lives to inspire through performing arts and entertainment. It all began with one piece of choreography titled The Sound of Silence performed by the 3 founding members. The Sound of Silence was a 4minute routine using the movements of Contemporary, Jazz, and Street dance with no music, no words and no sounds. Not knowing how the audience was going to respond, they took a risk and it instantly paid off. After the company’s debut performance, Sonkiss’d realized they had something people wanted and that was quality entertainment with an encouraging message. After performing in top venues around the city such as the Wortham Theater and the Hobby Center and collaborating with top Contemporary and Modern dance teams in Houston, Sonkiss’d Dance Theater decided to start producing their own shows. On April 27, 2013 Sonkiss’d Dance Theater produced their first production, The Chronicles of Creation. Now four years later with a full roster of performers Sonkiss’d has produced dozens of shows between Houston, Charlotte and New York City including their most outrageous production yet, Moving Mountains which was set at the Texas Rock Gym. With their ability to do anything they put their minds too, Sonkiss’d created a hour long, sold out production with dancers dancing and swinging 20 feet in the air on rock walls that included live painting and poetry. Sonkiss’d takes pride in the continued stories and comments on how their productions leave audience members inspired and uplifted which pushes them to keep creating and providing inspirational art.
