Jarrell Gordy is a free, open minded person that exemplifies the meaning of dance. He considers himself to be a true hip hop dancer that's dedicated to the art. He is a member of CORE Dance Crew amongst some of the most talented dancers in Detroit. As the Choreographer for CORE, he tries to step outside of the box with his choreography and style. He has appeared on the T.V. dance show called Dance Party as well as So You Think You Can Dance. He was thrilled to show the world what Detroit has to offer. He has opened for Hip Hop artist, ‘Lil Wayne, and R & B artist, Charlie Wilson. As a dancer, he strives to conquer every obstacle he encounters. He wants his students to know that in this business there are going to be ups and downs as a dancer, but it is important to stay focused. He encourages his students to push beyond their expectations and go the extra mile to prove to everyone that they have what it takes. His advice is to never allow anyone to tell you NO! Just believe in yourself. He loves being a Hip Hop Instructor at “one of the best dance schools in the State of Michigan: Deborah's Stage Door!!” Jarell has been teaching at DSD and we are so glad he is back this year! Jarell is also proud to be a part of "D-Town" - a great hip hop/dance group that performs at all of the Detroit Pistons games.
