Victor Eric Garcia

Victor Eric Garcia, known in the dance community as "Veric," was exposed to dance early on at family parties and in cultural school. Inspired by an award-winning traditional Filipino & hip-hop fusion dance performance in his senior year of high school, he later started his formal dance training with Strictly Funk, The University of Pennsylvania's premiere hip-hop and contemporary dance group. During his time on Strictly Funk, Veric danced and choreographed for sold-out shows every semester, each with its own unique theme. He contributed to the productions both logistically and creatively, eventually rising to the highest leadership positions of Chair and Director. After college, he joined UFP Dance Company as a company dancer and organizational member, and competed with the team all over the East Coast. Veric currently performs with LaGuardian Angels, a queer dance company based in the NY/NJ area, and continues to expand his dance horizons with IMGE while pursuing a career in project management and product development.
