Class Info

This class is for students who want to learn current styles within hip hop and African genres. Students will be challenged to learn new and fun grooves, and choreography, based on students’ skill level. Meet Alvedo: For Alvedo, performing in this year's Black Nativity signifies a full circle moment. In the year of 2000, Alvedo was discovered by the late Kabby Mitchell (mentor and teacher to many) who was the first black dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. In that year, Alvedo made his professional debut in Black Nativity. At the age of 19 Alvedo was selected to co-choreographed The Wiz at Seattle's Paramount Theatre. Alvedo attended Howard University, minoring in dance and theater arts, where he received a B.A degree. Alvedo then furthered his career as a professional dancer in Los Angeles, working with legendary hip-Hop choreographers such as Fatima Robinson, the Talauega Brothers, and performed with Usher, John Legend and Lady Gaga, to name a few, and has danced for Haitian and Congolese companies, Fua Dia Congo and Ra-Ra Toulimen. Alvedo is thrilled to be back where it all started, with an opportunity to give back to the Seattle black arts community that poured into his development as a performer.
