    Bio



    Korie Genius was born in Kingston, Jamaica and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. He has studied dance for many years and is well-versed in many styles including hip hop, dancehall, flexing, krumping and popping. Korie’s roots in the culture of dancehall have led to a career in this art form. He has taught the style for over 5 years at studios including Brooklyn Dance Project, Broadway Dance Center and Peridance both independently and with his group, Blackgold. Genius has choreographed for and performed with many well-known artists including Mr. Lexx and Mr. Vegas and has been featured in many music videos including Bunji Garlin’s “Brrt” and Rebel Star’s “Look What I Can Do.” He has also choreographed for Syabrite and Sirens After Dark in New York City.


    Recently, Korie created a very popular dancehall workshop, “Badda Dan Dem,” which brings choreographers and teachers from all over the world together to share their passion for dancehall.


    Korie strives to make his class accessible to all levels of learners by mixing simple grooves and movements with more intricate choreography. He infuses each class with authentic dances that help the student to understand the roots of dancehall. Korie is very passionate about his craft and this shows through in each class he shares with his students. His goal as a teacher is to share his love of dancehall and to help all his students feel confident in the style.
