Mychal McCulley, Jazz

By Brook


Young Angels is pleased to announce that Mychal McCulley (Los Angeles, Ca) will be joining The Kevin Harris Dance Camp Project as our jazz teacher this summer. The camp is for 35 kids with Autism and Down Syndrome, and we feel very lucky that we are able to attract faculty of this caliber. Camp will be at the Hawthorne Recreation Center, and yes, we are looking for sponsors, because camp will be FREE.

Having Kevin Harris at the helm of this project and bringing in master teachers has already taken us from just another summer camp to wow. I for one am leaping around the office but not in a way that could be called actual dance-- just leaping because it could have taken me months to get on the phone with Mychal.

Here is his biography. Mychal McCulley began his training at age 7 at Universal Dance Design. From there he moved at 9 years old to train as an original Debbie Allen Dance Academy student under the direction of Madam Adrienne Dellas-Thornton. Here he began training in a multitude of genres as well as working under greats such as Otis Sallid, Nathan Trice, Evelyn Thomas, George Zoritch, Desmond Richardson, Dwight Rhoden, and George Faison. He later began working professionally for such artists like Stevie Wonder, Destiny's Child, Missy Elliot, Westside Connection, Becky G, Jody Wately, Chaka Khan, and Deadmau5. He then became an original member and principal dancer with Masuka Dans Theatre. He has performed in several off Broadway productions like Loving The Silent Tears, as well as a soloist with Lula Washington Dance Theater performing across the States and Europe.

Right? If you know a kid who would enjoy our program, please let us know. If you feel moved to help us make this happen, here is the donate link.
