GUEST CHOREOGRAPHERS & ARTISTS BIOS
Jamile McGee started dancing at the age of 4. He was diagnosed at the age of 9 with Systemic Juvenille Rhumatory Arthritis and was told he would not be able to walk for the remainder of his life. He was miraculously healed and able not only to walk, but also to make his home on the stage. His gift to the world started with his first professional performance at the age of 14.
Jamile was a dance major at Wright State University where he excelled in ballet, modern, lyrical, and jazz. Jamile has performed and danced around the US and internationally since his debut on So You Think You Can Dance, where he was the 3rd place finalist. During that time, his ability to dance to any style was tested and proven on the highly rated national Fox TV show.
Jamile choreographed for Will Ferrell's Funny or Die webisode featuring Wayne Brady, Mike Tyson, and Bobby Brown. The video went viral and was one of the most circulated videos on the Internet in 2010. He has worked with artists such as Rihanna, Nelly Furtado, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, as well as major choreographers Jimmy Locust, Brian Friedman, Mia Michaels, Shane Sparks, Lavelle Smith Jr, and Lorianne Gibson. Jamile teaches workshops and master classes to eager students and is pioneering his choreography to lead the new movement of dance.
