About Thomecia
Hello! My name is Thomecia, you may call me Mimi :)
I've been teaching at my Alma Mater, Fisk University since I stepped foot on campus in 2010. I taught routines for the cheer squad and hip hop dance team. I also choreographed for numerous students on campus. Before college I obtained 15+ years of experience in many styles of dancing as well as cheerleading. I reside in the Bay Area, and have since advanced my choreography through training, performing with a dance company, artist development, teaching local classes, and more! I love working with children! I also love a great challenge, so if you feel like you have two left feet, I could change your world! Always remember, you are the artist and your body is the paint brush... Just move!

Taught me a choreography that I needed to perform in a few hours for a video we were recording on the same day. Even though it was last-minute, he showed Marvelous patience and an ethereal calmness to his instructions. Once you get the feeling of his dance choreography, you start getting the “swag” or the flow of the whole vision which makes learning dance with him a Resplendent experience! Definitely the Most-skilled, exceptionally gifted and purposeful choreographer I’ve ever known! MUST take classes with KENN...I would!

I come from a small place with not much dance training around. I had such a love for dance at a young age that I took it upon myself to branch out and train myself, but traveling to other places to gain experience and train under many different teachers and talent. I am now living in LA working as a professional dancer and would love to give back and teach all the knowledge I have gained and everything I will continue to learn.

I am still working as a dancer in the industry, so even though I may seem young, I believe it gives me and edge when teaching because I know what is current.

About Mariah
Hello! My name is Mariah and I am a passionate artist thriving to share love and light through the arts! I have worked as a professional dancer for ten years and have over fifteenth years of diverse training. In my early years, I received my training from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy where I was molded by the best educators possible to acquire outstanding skills. Learning ballet, jazz, tap, dunham, flamingo, hip hop, salsa, African, point, modern, character, musical theater, and Latin fusion. After high school I attended Columbia College Chicago where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Theater. During my years at Columbia I combined my passion for dance and interest in acting by diving into as much extracurricular as possible! I was one of the first student co-choreographers to choreograph a main stage musical at Columbia. I was very prou
d to co-choreograph Once On This Island while still working towards my degree! I have a very diverse background and it now reflects in my professional life. Currently, I spend my time taking care of animals, hiking, going to the beach, teaching dance/theater, taking dance class, and keeping up with my younger siblings.

I have judged for Star Bound Dance Competitions, taught lecture demonstrations at various k-12 schools around LA, performed for the Special Olympics, LA Lakers Half Time Show, Spaceship Launch Performance, Playboy Jazz Festival, Wallis Annenberg Center of Performing Arts, and Broadway Cares, worked with networks like FOX and BET, and have danced with various celebrities like Demi Lavato, Chris Brown, and Becky G.

My strive for positivity will help push you to your goals! I am very open and always wanting to learn so I will bring new things to the table constantly. Though, I am a firm believer in repetition and detailed practice. I have been highly disciplined throughout my years in the dance industry, and now combine my skills to create a diverse learning environment.

I can't stress enough how passionate I am about helping people! I plan to conduct a personal lesson that is designed for you. Working together we will create a plan that will exceed your expectations. We will create a comfortable, safe, creative, and diligent environment that is best for you! Small group classes are available as well!
