Jumatatu Poe

Jumatatu Poe is a choreographer and performer based between Philadelphia and New York City. His early exposure to concert dance was through African dance and capoeira performances on California college campuses where his parents studied and worked, but he did not start formal dance training until college with Umfundalai, Kariamu Welsh’s contemporary African dance technique. His work continues to be influenced by various sources, including my recent sociological research of and technical training in J-setting with Donte Beacham.
