Kinesis Project dance theatre creates large scale dance performance outdoors and in unusual spaces. Led by Choreographer Melissa Riker, the company invents fierce, beautiful and eccentric works that use movement and stillness to celebrate, interrogate and experience unique spaces, anywhere.

Creating a shared dance home at Nord Anglia in 2×2 Studio with Ajna Dance Co has offered Kinesis Project the freedom to branch out to many different outdoor spaces in NYC and beyond.

Kinesis Project / 2×2 Studio is also part of Dance Block’s Extra Block Dance Program. Extra Block residencies are available by inquiry; for full details, please email


2×2 Studios | 44 E. 2nd St. Floor 5E | 20’ x 34’ | Now being offered to invited dancemakers to do long-term residencies

2×2 Studios is a shared space built by Kinesis Project dance theater and Ajna Dance Company as Artists-in-Residence at the Nord Anglia International School on 2nd Avenue and 2nd Street. The two AiR companies regularly use 2×2 for their rehearsals, but have certain underutilized times they would like to open up to Dance Block! This will help infuse their unique studio with (even more) creative energy, allow affordable access to much needed space, and support the community. The studio has marley flooring and rolling mylar mirrors, there is a speaker available for sound, and renters are welcome to use up to 5 lockers for storage for a small fee.
