Born in Kingston Jamaica, Mikhail Morris’ love and passion for dance started at the age of ten where he pursued training and performance in high school. He was a competitor for five years with the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC). His repartee with the Arts flourished with a spot in the televised competition ‘Dancing Dynamite’ (2008) where he placed second overall. Consequently, armed with exposure and a growing success in the Arts, Mikhail was awarded scholarships to attend the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (School of Dance) where he studied for two years acquiring training in Modern dance, Classical Ballet and Traditional dance forms. Mr. Morris has choreographed and worked with some of Jamaica’s top Reggae and Dancehall artists such as Elephant Man, Mr. Vegas, Bennie Man, Tarrus Riley, Tifa and RDX, just to mention a few. Mr. Morris graduated with a Dance Certification in 2009 and is thankful that his journey, passion and opportunity for further development have led him to Toronto’s top dance companies such as Ballet Creole. From there he continued his journey with COBA (Collective of Black Artists). Mr. Morris also dance with Newton Moreas Dance Company for three years and also Nafro Dance Company, Kashe Dance and Wind in the Collectives. Additionally, Mikhail Morris was the Assistant Director of the (C&YDT) Children and Youth Dance Theatre with Andrea Douglas as the director of the company for three years, where one of his goals is to create pathways for children to pursue their talent as young artists. Currently, Mr. Morris is teaching the authenticity of Dancehall at City Dance Corps, which happens to be his most passionate style of dance which has allowed him to organize and/or create his own workshops all over Canada. His new vision is to build his own dance organization with the help of his Colleagues, educating others and bringing his vision of dance to another level.
