Nekai Abriol is a Movement Artist and Holistic Med Head from Los Angeles, CA. She is dedicated to exploring the essence of emotional vulnerability within the interconnected human experience. Her goal is to create a sacred healing space of empowerment, while spreading the wisdom of movement, for all individuals and dancers to tap deeper into their bodies and sensuality.
Nekai has been dancing for a whole decade. In her early life, with an observant eye, Nekai began her dive into the creative process of fluid movement when she tagged alongside her father on the set of music videos. Dance training opportunities at Murrieta Dance Project began to align for her at the age of 13. She continued to study contemporary technique and hip-hop in high school under the creative direction of Beau Fournier’s dance company: Maker Empire. She artistic directed Latitude Dance Company in 2014 & 2015 and taught at Empire Dance Productions located in Lake Elsinore, CA. At 18, she moved to San Francisco and since then has intensively trained in jazz funk, heels, and storytelling from the genius minds of Alli Fritz and Rocko Luciano of INQ Dance Company. Nekai is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance with a minor in holistic health at San Francisco State University. She has been broadening her repertoire in ballet, jazz, modern, Filipino folklore, aerial arts and tap. She is grateful to be Vice President of the Student Dance Alliance on campus and Student Director of University Dance Theater for the season of 2019/2020.
Nekai has choreographed multiple original modern dance works such as “Who is God,” “Life on Life’s Terms,” and in collaboration with the Driven Arts Collective, “Khôra.”
