President, Founding Member, Board Member
Valarie Perez-Schere is a founding member of Fluid Movement with over a decade of helping make the glittery magic happen. Fluid Movement shenanigans inspire her to celebrate the sublimely strange & commonplace wonder in her daily life as a mom of 3 awesome younguns.
Trixie is a hardworking acrobat and activist with irrepressible style and a super-hero-like ability to make things fabulous. Trixie founded Fluid Movement in 1998 and is responsible for bringing Fluid Movement’s trademark synchronized swimming shows into being. Viewing art as a lifestyle, not an hobby, Trixie has become known for her outlandish costumes, created for both performing and street wear, that are a cross between a Surrealist painting and an MGM musical. In addition to performance shenanigans with Fluid Movement, Trixie has a fine arts background, is an Open Society Institute Community Fellow and can be found performing as burlesque superhero - Trixie Little.
Melissa is a museum curator, artist, and writer living in New York City. She developed narratives and choreography for more than a dozen of Fluid Movement’s early shows,
and introduced new mediums such as roller skating, square dancing, flamenco dancing, tap dancing, and tchotchke shakin’. Her work today continues to explore intersections between people, geography, memory, and popular culture through unexpected modes of expression.
