Hysterica Dance Company emerged out of the late 90s and has become a creative, consistently prolific, and invigorating force in the Los Angeles dance community. Hysterica’s artistic director, Kitty McNamee, is actively creating in the theatrical and commercial arenas. She has brought her passion and originality to live events, videos, fashion shows, tv, film, ballet and opera.
