Joseph Oladimeji

Pre-advanced Contemporary Teacher 

 

This year I have the lovely opportunity of teaching the Pre-Advanced level of contemporary class! My focus will be on improv as well as incorporating other genres of dance into contemporary style. So, dancers who take my class will get to experience styles such as Contemporary-Ballet, Contemporary-HipHop, and more while furthering their improvisation skills!

What does dance mean to you? Dance to me is freedom, it is an opportunity to push yourself and experience a different side of the arts that can be very emotionally liberating. Dance helps build strong communities amongst people and wonderful memories. It is a surreal experience that I believe everyone should experience.

Theme song for your life: This is a very difficult question because my theme song for my life changes based on my mood. If I went with the popular one my theme song for my life would be "Donatella" by Lady Gaga.
