Dai’Vian “Stro” Washington (JJ)

Washington, a 22-year-old native Memphian, has been dancing since he was six years old. A ninth grade theater class revealed a talent for acting that he has since developed by performing in plays in high school and college. He followed jookin’ on the internet, but developed his own style (in the spirit of Chris Brown and Michael Jackson), and only began to learn jookin’ seriously during the past several years. Working with top-flight jookers in the show has been very motivating: “I’ve gotten so much advice from them, so much inspiration about how to be myself and incorporate that into the way I dance.” @Stro.901
