Coira Lee


  She has trained pre-professionally in Classical Russian ballet and Contemporary dance since the age of 3, but now gains inspiration from all sources of movement, from Asian Martial Arts to traditional African dance forms.  At the age of 13, she moved to New York City to attend LaGuardia HS of Performing Arts to major in Dance Performance, where she actively trained at Alvin Ailey, Peridance, Steps on Broadway and Broadway Dance Center.  

  She fell in love with more free-form dances such as Gaga, and Contact Improv as well as traditional dances from Cuba and West Africa.  When her dance mentors Danys ‘La Mora’ Perez and Youssouf Koumbassa took her under their wing, and she began training intensively in Afro-Cuban Folklore.

  From traditional West African dance, to salsa, then hip hop, vogue, dancehall and Afrobeat.  She hopes to bring dance to newer heights by fusing dance with other mediums to continue creating content for social media and brands to keep dance relevant for the world.
