Jeffrey Daniel was the first street dance choreographer on MTV and is world renowned for his ground-breaking work with Michael Jackson.
Jeffrey was the co-choreographer on ‘Smooth Criminal’ where he introduced “The Lean” to Michael, and on “Bad”. JD also appeared in both short films with his dance brother. He was later employed as a creative and choreography consultant on his world tours and the short films “They Don’t Really Care About Us” and “Ghosts”.
The most popular dancer on US TV show Soul Train, JD became a founding member of the multi award winning and hit making group Shalamar. He performed the Moonwalk on US TV and was the first to do so on UK TV (Top Of The Pops) and taught the move to Michael. The backslide as it was then known became one of the most iconic dance moves of the 20th Century.The dance classes will showcase the moves from those pioneering days and allow students to participate in some of the legendary MJ choreography.
The talk will illustrate Jeffrey’s career and highlights the origins and development of street dance. Participants for both beginners and advanced will attend the talk, following which there will be a question and answer session.
