hers and hers is a feminist dance collective curated by Melissa Lewis and Courtney King founded in 2013. We utilize queer & theatrical techniques to approach movement. We explore and deconstruct the personal / political to revolutionize the her.


Our love story: four years ago Melissa baked banana bread and brought a slice of it for Courtney on her birthday. It was one of their first rehearsals with Malinda LaVelle at USF. Since then, they’ve lived together, laughed and cried together, grown their small collection of dead objects together, made a couple little dance nuggets, missed each other from different sides of the world, and dreamed about starting this dance company.
