5:40pm - Hip-Hop lesson with Ladies of Hip-Hop dancer Jai’Quin Coleman

Dance for Jai’Quin is something that evolved from her experience being born in Brooklyn, and raised in the hip streets of Harlem. With local community parades, events, and amazing professional dance companies like Something Untouchable Dance Company (SUDC), Jai’Quin got the opportunity to explore her artistry, competing in national and international competitions like In10sity, Regional Revolution, winning scholarships at conventions, and also receiving dancer of the year within SUDC. She has travelled to South Africa with the “ Forces of Nature” x Harlem Children's Zone to perform at the “Playhouse theater” in Durban, or partake in New York Fashion Week. While also being a dance teacher/choreographer, Jai’Quin comes across all different types of beautiful people, companies and collectives such as Ladies of Hip-Hop and “The Masterz At Work” that allows her to develop life long connections in her career passions and endeavors.
