Meet RUBBERBAND’s Artistic Director and Choreographer Victor Quijada!
From street dance to classical ballet, Victor Quijada’s journey as a dancer is quite unique. He grew up in Los Angeles where he danced in the b-boying circles and hip-hop clubs, moved to New York City to join Twyla Tharp’s company before finally landing Montreal in 2000, where he joined Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. In 2002 he founded his own company RUBBERBAND, as a means of fusing his histories together to create something new. To mark the 20th anniversary of RUBBERBAND, he created a piece called Reckless Underdog, propelling the company’s achievements of the last twenty years to new heights.
