Culture Queenz dance crew are our all-female culturally diverse dance group specialising in Afro Dances and Dancehall for ages 16 – 22. Participants who join this group must apply as this is a mentor program aimed at building skills and experience for young culturally diverse women interested in a dance career. Participants learn about self-management, marketing and promotions, community advocacy, leadership, dance as therapy, performance skills and gain work-experience that leads to paid work later in the program. If your child or someone you know may be interested in joining we are taking new application for our 2021 program now.
Dance artist / Performer / Choreographer / Dance and fitness instructor
Lee has been dancing for as long as she can remember – firstly in the style of Hip hop and then, since arriving in Australia, and joining Melbourne’s top Dancehall crew Burncity Queenz has become highly acclaimed for her skills in Dancehall and Afrodances. Lee placed 3rd in the Australian Dancehall Queen competition in 2015 and travelled to Jamaica in that same year to learn from the creators first hand in Jamaica.
Over the past few years Lee’s career has gone from strength to strength – not only with her position at Jungle City, and as a member of Burncity Queenz, but also as a solo performer, performing with the likes of Sampa the Great, Baker Boy and featuring in numerous music videos with local and international artists.
Jungle City acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land where we work, we acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to their elders, past, present and emerging. Jungle City pledges commitment to ‘pay the rent’ to Aboriginal people in Victoria by contributing 2% of our monthly profits to Pay The Rent.
Jungle City acknowledges the creators of the dance forms we practice and pay my respect to them, their elders and their ancestors. Jungle City is committed to working toward unity in all our diversity through the power of dance, music and culture.
