Captivating the attention of the entertainment industry Jermaine Browne’s work is a unique combination of strength and sensuality. His passion for dance continues to evolve and inspire artists in music, fashion and even charity. Today, Jermaine is cultivating an international career as an innovative choreographer alongside his list of international clients including Greek superstar Anna Vissi, the British Music Awards, pop group Infernal, Conor Maynard and DJ Fresh to name a few.
Jermaine’s career took off when he was discovered as a performer in a Blockbuster/Visa commercial with Cindy Crawford. This led to commercial work with Gap, Nike and Toyota and later came video creations for Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle” and Jennifer Lopez’s music video “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” Success in music videos allowed Jermaine to contribute to the 2005 European MTV Music Awards, including the holographic performance of the Gorillaz and Borat.
Since then, Jermaine has choreographed films for global fashion house Louis Vuitton and designers Marc Bouwer and Rachel Roy, which earned him an accolade for best film at La Jolla Fashion Film Awards. Jermaine is known for his signature style and cultivates unique projects like a dance for The Heineken “Green Synergy” campaign, Movement coach for actress Emily Blunt, and dance curator for hotel Yotel further expanding his unique approach to creative dance. Crafting greater success in his genre Jermaine collaborated on Leona Lewis’ Labyrinth tour in the UK and in the last four years has developed choreography for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, including performances from Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj.
Jermaine continues to open doors for future success and thus, Spring 2012 anticipates the launch of Respect My Step, his newest project set to connect the dance and art communities via viral video. Respect My Step will be recognized as an online community where dancers and non-dancers alike can come together to share ideas in dance, culture, and innovation.
