Originally from Chicago, IL, Kenan has always been inspired and driven by music and performing arts. With over a decade of musical training in classical and jazz bands (playing the alto saxophone) and only a year of training in Tap, Kenan started dancing professionally while in school at Iowa State University where he joined the Hip Hop Dance Club. While in school, Kenan taught workshops, classes, solos and competition pieces in Iowa, Minnesota, Chicago, and South Dakota. Soon thereafter, Kenan started his first collaborative choreography company – 625 Beat Street, with professional choreographer, partner and friend, Jon Paul. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Education, Kenan moved to Los Angeles to further pursue his career as a choreographer and dance student. He's been featured in music videos from Indie-pop band, Hot As Sun, along with pop singer/songwriter, Kloe Julynn's hit single - "Boo Hoo". Kenan has also choreographed for Alternative Rock band, Saint Motel and Baby Boogaloo. He was formally a work-study at Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio, where he trained under some of the industry’s best and brightest choreographers. Kenan is currently teaching at Live Arts LA and Beach Cities Dance, along with countless private lessons and training sessions. Kenan is BEYOND excited to share his musical connection to the world with his students through GROOV3! HUP HUP!
