Hip Hop is the center of everything I am. My love for hip hop started in Atlanta, Georgia at age two. When I was a toddler, I used to watch MTV with my mother and dance to various music videos. I have trained in ballet, jazz, modern and tap, but hip hop came naturally to me. Growing up, I competed throughout Atlanta, Georgia in hip hop dance battles and competitions. I have choreographed master classes in Raleigh, Cary, and Durham where I taught students of all ages the elements of raw, street dance. As a rising senior in college, I have studied dance at Meredith College and University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Some dancers who inspire my movement are artist like: Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Ciara, Willdabeast, Aliya Janell, Les Twins and many others. In hip hop, there are no rules, which means you as the dancer can reinvent yourself each eight count. My goal with dance is to open a non profit to help inner city youth express themselves through various art forms. I want to focus on the importance of mental health, self awareness and creating a better, safer future by inspiring the youth to find their authenticity through movement.
