LaMia is from Camden NJ, a graduate of the city’s first arts high school. She attended the University of the Arts Philadelphia where she trained vigorously in ballet, modern, jazz and other cultural dances. LaMia’s artistic flare was recognized by recording artist, Jill Scott when she was in high school and was asked to appear as lead dancer in her music videos. Always an avid fan of hip-hop, LaMia began to delve into the dance style after joining Face Da Phlave a Hip Hop company that focuses on pure hip-hop movement and positivity. Through Face Da Phlave, LaMia has trained in the styles of locking, popping, breaking, and house and teaches each style at several studios in South Jersey. LaMia continues to train and perform in all forms of dance and performed as a dancer for the Garden State Dance Festival’s repertoire company.
LaMia has performed with ICMovement in Philadelphia and travels internationally using dance as an instrument of education for young women. Her summer plans include pursuing further education in dance therapy as well as the development of a Praise Dance class. LaMia continues her own dance performance training under Rennie Harris and Lauren Putty. Ms. Dingle’s concept based choreography draws a wonderful and committed crown of young dancers every year as participants and her private lessons ahve helped place our college dancers in prestigious dance colleges and companies across America. Lamia’s solists are recognized for their innovative take on populat music and are recognized on the National Competition circuit for level of difficulty, technique and artistry.
Lamia and her husband Josh welcomed their first child in November 2013. Her next greatest production is REVEAL Movement Co. which is housed here in CORE Academy twice yearly and travels nationally with guest artists from Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas and abroad.
