The Corps Dance Crew is dedicated to combining our two greatest loves: dance and all things nerdy! Under the direction of Kayla Mallari and Sonali Samarasena, our group creates cosplays, videos, and live dance productions that bring our favorite fandoms to life in a new and refreshing ways. We have performed at several conventions throughout California such as Anime Expo, Ani-Me Con, Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con, WonderCon, and San Diego Comic Con, among many others, and continue to branch out to different conventions across the country!
The Corps has cosplayed as characters from Attack on Titan, Kingdom Hearts, X-Men, Teen Titans, Agents of Shield, and a plethora of new and old animes that you are bound to recognize! All photos of cosplays, as well as photos of other costumes, can be found on our website here!
Our most recent performance brought all the Teen Titans out of the woodwork. The Titans will be making another appearance at San Diego Comic Con this year.
This set is a celebration of our favorite animes, including Your Lie in April, Death Note, Inuyasha, Avatar the Last Airbender, and Sailor Moon.
Our award-winning performance at Maxt Out Dance Competition that paid homage to Burlesque, Chicago, and all the awesome musicals that inspired the creation of this set.

As our Patron, we will be taking you on a wonderful, nonsensical journey; you're going to learn with us, grow with us, and laugh with us and we couldn't be more excited!
