Aakomon "AJ" Jones



#FBF #Aakomon #JonesCurated Over the years, New York has played an extremely special role in my story. Of the faces that personify that story for me, Voodoo Ray’s has remained prominent and unchanged (literally). #ThankYou for always making us foreigners feel welcome. #ThankYou for setting an example of how a #Legend treats the new cats trying to figure it out, thank you for ALWAYS SHOWING LOVE over the years. You’ve kept us all connected for so long, you’ve been such a bright spirit. NYC is forever changed now. #RIP #VoodooRay #NYCLegend #Dominican #HouseMaster #HipHop #Ambassador #AReallyGreatGuy #OneLove About last night... 🤦🏾‍♂️ Ain’t nothing like burning calories with The Kid on his birthday! #OneLove and #HappyBDay @usher #SoulCycle then straight to rocking w/ @flomaster73 
Oh, and that’s the other homie in the pic @lesleyer - who is clearly from #Brooklyn
We goes back like chiroprac. I've severed my connection to the NFL this season. Haven't watched a single game, nor a sports show about a game. But the above clip came to my attention and I thought I'd share. I imagine the idea is to learn the lessons of life from those who've come before you, at an earlier age than they themselves learned. Maybe that's the key to advancement. #AndIThankYou #We'llTakeItFromHere #OneLove #RIP #RIP #DickGregory 
Thank you so much. It has been an honor and joy to hear you speak on the times that have come before mine, during mine, as well as the times yet to come.. My dad peeped me to you years ago and I'm speaking like this to people with short attention spans who prolly don't care cause I want them to know and care about your story. Thank you thank you #ThankYou I will continue to learn and apply till the day I die. #DickGregory #Activist #Comedian #Scholar #OneLove 🖕🏾
#IJS My spirit animal for the day.

#flō's #backyard #manhattanbeach 🙌🏾 Getting @aakomon and his fiancé @fresh2impress ready. So cool. The birthday boy we celebrate today made these signs for me. What event, and in what year am I celebrating again today? Ok I'm celebrating a number of colonies who declared their independence from Britain in the year 1776. We celebrate the achievements of those colonies that year. 
So that I can prepare for the day's celebration, let's talk about those colonies. Let's talk about colonization in America before I iron out my American flag outfit. Fyi #ImBlack ...next to the these guys of course;) #NewEdition
The best to ever do it. #NewEdition
The best to ever do it.

Aakomon "AJ" Jones’ most recent work can be seen in the newly released James Brown biopic “Get On Up”. His upcoming projects include "Pitch Perfect 2”, directed by Elizabeth Banks and set to be released in 2015, and the highly anticipated “Untitled Rock ‘n Roll Project” directed by Martin Scorsese. AJ’s experience and unique talent has led him to working with an impressive group of filmmakers and actors, for example, “Pitch Perfect”, "The Rum Diary", "Nights of Rodanthe", "Center Stage 2: Turn It Up" and "Dream Girls". His extensive compilation of work also extends into television, having choreographed for “Super Fun Night”, “Dancing With the Stars”, “Community”, and “The Voice”, for which he was also Season 4’s Performance Producer.

A Decatur, Georgia native, AJ's love of music led him to connect with developing artists in Atlanta's music scene. Despite his lack of formal training, AJ was always a natural, and soon began his dance career performing with artists in Atlanta such as Monica and TLC. He did so well that he ended up joining their highly anticipated “Fanmail” Tour.

After establishing himself as a respected dancer, AJ then received his first big break as a choreographer working with the R&B group 112. AJ has choreographed numerous music videos and countless television performances, including the Best Song Nominees for the 2008 Academy Awards.  He has since segued into Creative Directing, working with Usher on his intimate "One Night Stand" US Tour in 2008 and the music video for "OMG,” which was nominated for a 2010 MTV VMA for Best Choreography.

AJ’s success has led him to choreograph for some of the most renowned artists such as Madonna, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Faith Hill, Will Smith, Janelle Monae, Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, The Backstreet Boys, Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake and more. He is unmistakably one of today's hottest choreographers and creative directors for film, television, commercials, and live tours.  His choreography can best be described by the clean lines, musicality, sharpness, and versatility that he brings to the forefront of all his projects.
