Levels taught:
I have been street dancing since I was seven years old, but started teaching it when I was in 6th grade. In 2012 I gained training in Funk, and Lyrical hip- hop, and teaching both styles ever since then.
My teaching goals are basically to help the students gain simple movements and concepts of each hip- hop style.
Even as a teacher you are still a student, so I still get training to build my skills each day and help others gain from what I learn.

About markiya O.

Hi, my name is Markiya. I have been dancing hip- hop since I was seven years and never stopped dancing since then. I was self taught by watching music videos, and memorizing choreography to build my skills. I have been teaching choreography since 6th grade and still continue to do so. Over the years I gained training of different styles of hip- hop, and still gaining training as hip- hop advances. However, I consider my self a student as-well because I like gaining as much training as possible, while still making time to help others. Nevertheless, I am a very friendly person that has a great personality, outgoing, and determined to fulfill goals. I believe that anything is possible if you put your mind, and heart to it. My style of teaching is very easy to learn, but also can be a little challenging at times. Overall my teaching style can be fun, very energetic, and also beneficial to help gain great experience.
