Jamal Abrams



I was born in Baltimore, MD and first began performing in my living room. With no outlet to dance or proper training facility, I looked to music videos and youtube to see what was in style at that time. I later attended Milford Mill Academy; I received training in theatre as well as dance. After high school, I went on to attend The University Of the Arts, where I trained in ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop. My interest outside of performing is enjoying time with my family and taking the time to be on the opposite side of the stage. Actress Dana Bowles and dancer Darby Pack have influenced me in numerous ways, but their teaching techniques taught me lessons that go beyond the stage.
