    La Jon Dantzler has been an emerging presence on the dance scene since he became a member of Rhapsody the Company in 2004. From his hard work and training his career blossomed enabling him to star in movies such as Stomp the Yard, Step Up 2 and Step Up 3D. Some of his dance credits include working with renowned choreographers Luther Brown, Dave Scott, Chuck Maldanado and Nu Styles and most recently the Missy Elliot promo tour . As La Jon stepped out on his own as a choreographer he was given the opportunity to assist on projects such as: Coca Cola, McDonald’s, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, X- Factor USA, MTV, SYTYCD Canada as well as being featured in Dance Teacher Magazine for choreographing the launch of Cheryl Burkes exciting new clothing line Ideology. Becoming Artistic Director of the first Urban Reach Dance Convention show: Identity and his latest achievement as Creative Director and Choreographer of the sold out show Welcome to Da Dollhouse has only further solidified the future of this rising talent. A resident teacher at the prestigious Broadway Dance Center and Peridance Capezio Center La Jon continues to spread his art and knowledge to help others achieve their greatness while pushing the envelope with his ever evolving choreography.
