The OTR Crew was more than excited to get a call from Kiki Ely & Sakinah LeStage. We've been anticipating their upcoming Dance Conventions and guest choreographers so, meeting them was an honor! OTR's passion for Entertainment turned our time with these two powerhouses into a starstruck experience.
Kiki’s portfolio includes Drumline, Tamar Braxton, Janelle Monae, August Alsina's URX Tour and a new reality show on UpTv Dancing The Dream. Sakinah’s most recent work includes Reginae Carter, Ne-Yo, T-Pain, NAACP Festival, 2015 Grammys and 2015 Bet Awards.
As the Creative Directors and Owners of AtLA Takeova Dance Convention, Kiki and Sakinah are the first female black owners to own a dance convention. They offer dancers the chance to work with some of the top choreographers in the worlds from Sean Bankhead, Peanut, Codie Wiggins, Oththan Burnside, Chuck Maldonado, Jamaica Craft, Draico Johnson and Danielle Polanco just to name a few.
During their classes, they teach their students to pull their emotion from life experiences, to have an understanding of their audience and, most importantly, to show professionalism.
