MEET JEVON 'JERZEY' GOLDSON: CREATIVE DIRECTOR AND CHOREOGRAPHER
Jerzey, tell us a little more about how you got into dancing.
I took dancing more seriously in high school.
I competed in every dance competition and created my own mental state to hone my craft.
With very little support, I trained and networked my way up.
You truly are a jack of all trades; what does your creative process look like when it comes to your choreography?
My creative process is all about how I feel.
I'm all about bringing the performance aspect to my choreography and out of my students.
I focus on creating choreography and stories based on the experiences I've been through, dreamed of, but most importantly, what people can relate to.
What would you say to those who look up to your work and want to get into creative directing or dancing?
Dancers are amongst the hardest working art performers and the most under-recognized, and under-appreciated.
It is imperative to train and study the greats so you can build your skills.
Use your passion to fuel your creativity and continue to network and meet people along your journey.
Most importantly NEVER GIVE UP on your dream.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
I'm focusing on my IG Live show,"Black Culture The Breakdown" #BCTB which airs on my IG page every Sunday at 10:30 P.M. EST.
My performing arts organization, Lotus Creations Academy has just opened its doors, and is getting ready to be back in the full swing of things in an all-new, safe, covid-free way.
There are a few more surprises that I’m working on now and I’m looking to talk more about them before the year is up.
