Davalois Fearon is a critically acclaimed dancer, teacher, and choreographer born on the island of Jamaica and raised in The Bronx, New York. She is the founder and Artistic Director of Davalois Fearon Dance. Her choreography has been presented throughout New York City, including at the Joyce Theater, E-Moves 17 dance series, The Dance Enthusiast “Moving Caribbean in NYC,” the Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, Roulette, and the Inception to Exhibition Dance Festival, as well as in Berkeley (CA), Portland (OR), Tampa (FL), and Kingston, Jamaica.
