    Joanna Numata

    Street Jazz

    Biography:

    Joanna Numata moved to Manhattan at the age of 17 to attend Hunter College. During her winter break, her tap teacher advised her to begin taking dance classes in the city. Joanna continued her studies in ballet, tap, and jazz, and began her study of hip hop. After devoting much of her time to improving her craft, Joanna's tenacious efforts paid off. She was invited to become a member of Rhapsody James's company. This opportunity allowed her to gain the experience and training she would need for the commercial dance world. Almost one year after she began training in the city, Joanna started dancing professionally. During the summer of 2004, she started teaching at different studios in Manhattan. Within the past few years, Joanna has taught master classes across the U.S. and abroad. She has had the privilege of working with such artists as Fergie, Busta Rhymes, P.Diddy, Nelly, Pharrel, Black Eyed Peas, and Cassie. Other credits include the feature film I Am Legend, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Fashion Rocks, the MTV VMAs, Saturday Night Live, Law & Order, and industrials for L'Oreal, Nexxus, Nike, Adidas, Sobe Lifewater, and Equinox.

    Class Description:




    Joanna Numata offers a class that focuses on musicality and the use of levels and dynamics along with different qualities of movement. Students work on precision, body awareness, and performance. This class will help students prepare for the commercial dance industry by working on skills needed to create a stronger, more versatile dancer. Joanna's style ranges from smooth-grooves to energetic hits.
