Creative contributions and offerings will be made by...

Maisha Mercee Morris was born and reared in Odessa, TX. As one of six children she has always had an audience to perform for. Maisha gained her training at the age of four and had the opportunity to learn from various teachers in dance from both her jr high and high school dance teams. When she graduated from Odessa High at 17 she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her love of dance. Maisha was accepted into the Debbie Allen Dance Academy where she studied a multitude of dance forms and was trained by world-renowned teachers. At age 21 she joined a company called CONTRA-TIEMPO. The company's mission was to create space for everyones voice to be heard and use various dance forms like salsa and contemporary dances of the African - Diaspora to bring the work to life. Maisha toured with the company for four years as a peformer and teaching artist.

Maisha is currently living in New York where she is training with the Alvin Ailey dance school and doing freelance performances. Maisha thanks God for the beautiful journey of dance that continues to fuel her life.
