Setsucon would like to welcome this year's special guests!

Antipode

Antipode is an eccentric dance group that has combined their love of otaku/nerd culture with their love of belly dancing to create a unique form of dance known as geek belly dancing.  Antipode performs throughout the year at numerous conventions.  They were founded in 2006 and have performed all over the United States and even in the United Kingdom.


The group is currently made up of three dancers: co-directors Ayla, the choreographer; and Merika, the costumer; and member Kaiya, our quirky propmaster. Though primarily the three, Antipode has had multiple guest dancers grace their shows.


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.
