Maia Maiden

Scientist by day, dancer by night, Maia Maiden has been a pillar in the dance community for over 20 years. As curator and director of Maia Maiden Productions, her passion for cultural representation in the arts has led to the creation of innumerable powerful performances including ROOTED: Hip Hop Choreographers’ Evening, the first and only choreographers’ evening dedicated to dance under the hip hop umbrella and its roots in the Twin Cities, as well as the multidisciplinary Sistah Solo | Being Brothas, which features solo performances by women and men of color. She holds many recognitions and honors, most recently being selected as a one of 12 from around the country to be a 2019 American Express NGen Fellow.
