Culture Shock DC, Legendary House of Ninja
Johnii originated as a young freestyler from Future Shock DC in 2006. In that 1st year he learned to expand his artistic vocabulary and step out of his shell of just being a Freestyle Dancer. Within a year he grew into a Culture Shock DC Freestyle team member as well as shared his choreography with the team in future years. Johnii was also a part of GnC dance crew of the Washington, DC area, where he has been groomed to appreciate the groove and subtleties of music, and also began to explore more of the art of choreography. Since then, his own choreography has been seen in Culture Shock’s East Coast Dance Competitions, World of Dance New York, and the Culture Shock Choreographers showcase.
Additionally, Johnii has been a part of the ever-growing underground Ballroom Scene. He was 1st accepted into the Iconic House of Revlon in 2010, where before taking his leave from the house after 2 years, he won 4 Grand prizes out of 6 balls competed, and made it past preliminaries and on to the battles at House Dance International NYC 2010. Self-trained in Vogue, in 2009 he was taken under the wings of Tyrone Proctor where he honed his skills of musicality and soul through Waacking. Two years later, he’s been in severe music videos with international artists such as Salia from Japan and local Washington D.C. artist Lolita Leopard as well as being accepted into the Legendary House of Ninja where he continues to train and expand on his knowledge and artistry in hopes of sharing the knowledge of the art of Vogue and ballroom scene alike.
