Amy “Catfox” Campion
Amy “Catfox” Campion is a dance art maker, activist, and educator who empowers people through hip-hop culture. Her work crosses artistic and cultural boundaries, transplanting hip-hop dance from street to stage; remixing street dance vocabularies; and telling stories through a multimedia intersection of dance, theater, film, poetry, graffiti art, and music. Through a collaborative creative process, Campion partners with performers to create choreography that is both virtuosic and expressive. Her work showcases the innate capacity of hip-hop art forms to advocate for positive social change.
Campion’s dance art experience spans two decades and involves multiple dance styles, most prominently breaking, hip-hop, and capoeira. In 2006, she graduated from UCLA’s Department of World Arts and Cultures with an MFA in choreography. From 2007–19, she founded and directed Antics, a multimedia hip-hop dance theater company. Campion’s work has been presented internationally, nationally, and extensively throughout greater Los Angeles. She is a part-time faculty member at the California State University Long Beach Dance Department. For more information, visit Anticsperformance.com.
