A new and up and coming choreographer that I know quite well is Damani Pompey. Damani’s choreography and hard work is an inspiration. He (and I) attended the Fiorello H Laguardia High School for Performing Arts as a dancer and furthered his training at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance where he graduated in 2012. Damani is a skilled dancer, choreographer and lighting designer. A free lance choreographer, he recently premiered Magnus Works at the E- Moves stage in Harlem, New York. His dancers were Tamisha Guy, Cody Hayman and Tyler Shnese (all SUNY Purchase dancers).

Here are some videos of his previous works:
