State College, PA
Antipode was originally founded in 2006 and performed their first skit/dance show at Setsucon '07. The eccentric dance group has combined their love of otaku/nerd culture with their love of belly dancing to create a unique form of dance known as theatrical belly dancing. Antipode performs throughout the year at numerous conventions.
The group is primarily made up of three dancers: Ayla, the choreographer; Merika, the costumer; and Termariel, the scriptwriter. Though primarily the three, Antipode has had multiple guest dancers grace their shows. Many of these dancers come from the Penn State Belly Dance Club.
Fusing the theatrics of acting with a mix of cosplay, pop-culture, and off- beat humor Antipode brings the audience not just dance, but full geek entertainment.
