Brooklyn born and bred, Jeo is the by product of parents who were dancers in their youth and in the arts. This exposure to all things rhythmic marinated in his veins as early as age 2. Displaying interest in music and dance, the inspiration that had the most impact on him was The King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Teaching dance was an outlet and has always been somewhat fluent to Jeo, especially having younger siblings and coming from a creative household. His younger sister, also an established Dancehall Queen, was his first protégé and main student. Teaching and becoming a teaching artist allowed Jeo’s unique style and ability to blend different techniques from street jazz, to hip hop to dance hall to salsa made him a very sought after choreographer. Presently, JEO the Dancer aka “Jeo Da Dancer" has appeared and choreographed hundreds of music videos to date. With an ever increasing resume under his belt he has his sights to do more internationally. He's multifaceted: he writes lyrics, deejay, raps, has acting chops and is currently the host of his own television segment called ‘Dancers Corner’. In his own words he says ‘I see myself reaching far in the music industry and also going down in history sharing the love that I have with all people in the world’.
