We are renowned for providing New
Orleans a structured yet fun and exciting place for youth to learn the
fundamentals of dancing. From ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acrobats and
now cheerleading, we provide something special for each child. Focusing
on small dance groups allow us to foster a one on one environment which
allows us to concentrate on the unique needs of every dancer and
2013, Jennelle Irene Spurlock stepped out on FAITH and founded Imani
Dance Academy. She brings over 20 years of experience as a dancer and
teacher. Her roots began at Trudi's School of Dance and ended at Robin's
Dance School. For 17 years, she led the liturgical dance team at St. Paul
the Apostle and choreographed countless routines from ballet to lyrical to
hip hop. She helped the dancers believe in themselves and minister God's
word through dance. In 2003, she reestablished the modern and liturgical
dance team at St. Mary's Academy until Katrina. Her desire has always been
to reach out to the youth of the community to help develop their
self-confidence and esteem through dance. So, her journey continues here
through Imani Dance Academy.
Adriana Bocage...When I perform and hear the applause, it's the most amazing
feeling ever. Watching the kids that I have choreographed dance across the
stage beats any standing ovation. Helping kids build their self-esteem
through dance is what has inspired me to want to start my own dance studio.
I have been dancing for 17 years and counting and dancing is my passion.
It's something I love to do and will continue to educate myself so I can be
the best educator for your kids.
