ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR:
IZZY ODIGIE Afro-fusion choreographer/dancer Iziegbe ‘Izzy’ Odigie started dancing as a child growing up in Nigeria. At her boarding school, she would participate in weekly break dance competitions with fellow students. This “street dance” experience further sparked her interest in American hip-hop & pop. In 2007, Odigie moved to the States and began seriously pursuing an artistic career.
She delved into modeling while in high school before formally taking up dance with a crew known as Enkore. She developed a unique skillset in the hip-hop genre before co-founding her own African dance collective – TRŸBE – at the age of eighteen.
Izzy made her major breakthrough on the Afro-dance scene with a stellar on-stage performance with Eddy Kenzo to continental hit – “Sitya Loss”. She followed this up with other trending choreographies, such as her “Eggplant Routine” and “OMG Choreography”, that propelled Odigie to the national spotlight.
Izzy choreographs, performs, and teaches Afrobeats in multiple cities around the world. Moving forward, she will create and collaborate more to grow her brand and the dance industry.
