Jaami W.V., originally from Washington State, has been dancing for over 25 years, beginning with jazz and ballet. She began studying hip hop at the age of 14, and soon organized a school dance team at her high school. After she graduated, she joined AmeriCorps National Service and founded an after school hip hop dance program for teens, to help address the rising teen crime rate. She then moved to San Diego specifically to dance in the San Diego State University dance program. Wanting to dance more, she began teaching hip hop at local gyms and dance studios throughout San Diego. In 2002, she founded Kruciaal Element Hip Hop Dance Company where she directs, choreographs, and organizes numerous performances in San Diego and Los Angeles County including events like Monster Bash and Mardi ...
Modern dance teacher with 10 years teaching experience and a lifetime of joyous dancing to share with you! I will teach you beginning technique or help you find greater freedom in your movement if you are a more advanced student. My background includes strong ballet and contemporary dance technique as well as improvisation and somatic practices.
I care deeply about sharing my love of dance and experience as a dancer with my students, and love to challenge and develop my students in a caring way to meet their artistic and professional goals. I believe in being a person first and foremost, and ask my students to think for themselves in class, in order to nurture their own artistry. I also focus strongly on high-quality dance technique, drawing from my formal classical ballet training as well as training in various modern dance techniques (Limon, Cunningham, and Release) and somatic practices (such as Yoga, The Axis Syllabus, and mindfulness meditation.) I have been studying dance seriously since I was a child - beginning with 12 years of formal ballet training and transitioning to modern dance as a teenager. My professional ...
I noticed a lot of teachers use songs that are very Hood, Buck, and Ratchet. Very few teachers bridge the gap to introduce the sexier side of Hip Hop and R&B. I hope to teach you moves that are more fluid and flow with the song. I intend to help you recognize the different instruments/lyrics of a song, and not rely entirely on an 8 count.
a.k.a. StyListiK SmurF I have been in the dance community for the past year. We are a very positive community and are about uplifting and encouraging, instead of pointing out flaws. As long as you are trying your best and giving your all, that's all I ask in a student. Dance is not about who is the best, but interpreting a song based on how you feel it. Dance is suppose to be fun and inspiring! I specialize in the R&B side of Hip Hop. You should expect to dance to songs by artists such as Usher, Marques Houston, Trey Songz, Chris Brown, etc.

I began my dance training in Oregon, where I grew up, then moved to Los Angeles to attend college and try my hand in the Hollywood dance scene. I worked throughout LA and Riverside counties before coming to San Diego to enjoy the relaxed way of life. San Diego introduced me to circus arts and I fell in love right away. I have been teaching dance for over 15 years for all ages and all skill levels. I am proficient in performance and therapeutic movement. I love to teach jazz, ballet, modern, aerial silks, fire spinning and yoga. Whether you are looking to improve your technique or polish a performance piece I would love to help you have fun and let your creativity out!
