The Monarch School of Dance team was founded by two dynamic, high-energy professionals with more than 20 years of extensive dance training and performance experience.
The founders, Chiquita and Kamilah, have studied dance at some of the most prestigious dance schools in Chicago and Philadelphia including: Academy of Movement & Art, University of the Arts, Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Philadanco and Freedom Theater.
The two have worked with prominent music directors and choreographers such as Hype Williams, Diane Martel, Paul Hunter, and Fatima Robinson. They have also appeared in videos and performed with artists such as Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Missy Elliott, and Will Smith.
The team met while members of the Philadelphia 76ers Dance Team where Chiquita was co-choreographer and Kamilah was co-captain. They formed their first partnership while working with local high school dance teams as choreographer and coach.
Motivated by their love of dance and the passion to transfer their knowledge and skills to others, they founded Monarch School of Dance in 2014 where they work together to bring quality dance classes to children and adults.
