Jordan Galloway

Jordan’s training began in musical theater at her elementary school in Columbus, Georgia where she took part in several musicals performing vocals and lyrical and jazz based choreography.  Jordan’s family moved to Florida the summer after her theater debut. Her journey continued when she joined her high school dance and color guard team, the Bartow High Code Blue Jackets. In high school, Jordan began competing at local county and state competitions winning countless titles for lyrical and jazz numbers. Also Jordan dove heavy in to the world of color guard, competing mainly in the Florida Federation of Color guard Circuit (FFCC), where Jordan took a silver medal her junior year. After high school, Jordan traveled to Orlando, Fl. to start her studies at the University of Central Florida. Her freshman year, she joined the world medal champion independent color guard team, Fahrenheit Independent based out of Orlando. Jordan competed in FFCC and Winter Guard International (WGI) competitions across the state that year and traveled to Dayton, Ohio where she competed against teams from around the world. This is when Jordan was offered her first teaching opportunity. Jordan began teaching and coaching dance and color guard at Spruce Creek High school and Jones High school in 2010. And assisted and taught with some of the best color guard instructors in the country at the Music N’ Motion summer camp series. Jordan’s sophomore year she decided to join UCF’s hip-hop collegiate team, RUKUS Entertainment, where she quickly found what she would call home and family for the next three years. Jordan was exposed to many different styles of dance including dancehall, technique, latin, jazz funk and hip-hop choreography or what is really known as street jazz. Jordan began choreographing for the team and took the role of Head Choreographer for this massive organization of 50 collegiate dancers. Rukus has performed for artist’s such as Drake, Ciara, Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Wayne and many more, has competed and won Bet’s Spring Bling and 106 & Park television shows, won title’s such as UCF’s Best Dance Crew and UF’s annual CaribSa, and performed showcases at events like Kanvas in Tampa, Fl. After being seen, Jordan was asked to choreograph and stage what is one of her biggest achievements to date, the Ms. Corporate America Pageant held in Orlando, Florida. Finding many successes with RUKUS, she found another local organization called Studio One, where she gained much knowledge on the foundations of “hip-hop” including house, whaacking, popping, locking, and bboying. As a part of Studio One, Jordan found a mentor in Coach Julie Johnson and has not only gained knowledge of foundations but how to spread love & light in the dance community. Studio One recently won a 1st place title as Prelude South champions in 2012. Jordan has also recently entered the All-styles Battle scene, proving to be quite successful as the “new girl” making several semi-finals spots at some of the biggest jams in Florida
