I fell in love with music and dance when  I visited my families home in the Caribbean for the first time.  I love the way that dance is a form of expressing your thoughts and emotions with music.  From my room to dance classes to stage I have fun dancing Soca, Dancehall, Afrobeat, Twerk and Bounce.  When I am not dancing with Seattle Twerkshop, I love exploring new songs to create choreography.

There’s no such thing as “I can’t dance” when you take a class with J’Killa! Dance has always been a passion of mine and I believe in empowering people through art. The body is an amazing tool and once you learn it, you will be unstoppable! Come share some upbeat, sexy and fun Hip-Hop, Twerk and Bounce routines. It’s guaranteed to be a good time and you’ll leave ready to hit the dance floor (smiles included!)

​​I love to bring my cultures of New Orleans, Cameroon and Guinea!  I've been dancing since I could walk (maybe before) and around entertainment luminaries in New Orleans.  From dancing at Mardi Gras to learning Zulu, Mapouka and even tap dance, I've studied and enjoyed diaspora dance and love making sexy, flirty, fun choreography.  New Orleans Bounce and Mapouka is where I found my heart and I love sharing it with you with my twerk and afrobeats ego - "BossTwerk".  I'm a boss in the boardroom during my day work and a boss at fitness! Have traveled the world and danced throughout Europe, the Caribbean and Africa, while choreographic parades.  I Love teaching Seattle Twerkshop and our performances.  Come and dance with me - all levels, ages and body types can work out with a Mardi Gras or Afrobeats beat!  Twerk fitness and Afrobeats is where it's at!
