Doing it and doing it and doing it well! That lyric is playing in my mind when I think of movement, when I visualize Mr. Juel Lane. Fusing West African, contemporary modern, and hip-hop and ballet his style is all his own. He continues to innovate and surprise with his skill as a passionate performer and choreographer. Check out this month’s issue of Dance magazine where Juel D. Lane is listed as one of the top 25 to watch in Dance. Not surprising considering his amazing work from his highschool years in Freddie Hendricks’ YEA to the performing with the likes of Ron Brown and Camille A. Brown to name a few.
He has moved on to do choreography in his own right and his work is definitely taking the reins, proudly exemplifying that “he got next” in the dance game. I’m gonna have to holler at him for some choreography on a song or two. Get it Juel!
