    Biography:

    La Jon Dantzler has been an emerging presence in the dance industry, earning starring roles in films such as Stomp the Yard, Step Up 2 and Step Up 3D, Friends with Benefits. As La Jon stepped out on his own as a Choreographer, he has contributed to projects in all media, including Commercials (Coca Cola, McDonald's, Verizon, MTV), Television (X-Factor USA, SYTYCD Canada), Tours (Madonna, Britney Spears), and music videos (Anjulie, Sariah,Tashi). La Jon was also featured in Dance Teacher Magazine for choreographing the launch of Cheryl Burke's exciting new clothing line with Macy's: Ideology. As a Creative/Artistic Director, La Jon's credits include the Urban Reach Dance Convention show ("Identity") and the sold out show "Welcome to Da Dollhouse." A resident teacher at Peridance Capezio Center and New York University (NYU), La Jon continues to spread his art and knowledge to help others achieve greatness in dance, while pushing the envelope with his ever-evolving choreography. Teaching internationally in countries like Japan, Indonesia, Mexico and Peru further allows La Jon to extend his impact beyond the US.
