Kai Martinez is a dance teacher that has extensive experience in both the commercial choreography and freestyle dance world. The combination of knowledge has garnered her opportunities to teach at some of the most prestigious professional dance studios across the country including Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio, Millennium Dance Complex, Joffrey School of Dance, Movement Lifestyle, TMILLY, ImmaSpace as well as various company studios across the US.

As a professional dancer and choreographer, Kai has had the pleasure of working with Recording Artists such as Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Camilla Cabello, Annderson Paak, Bebe Rexha, Jason Derulo, Beck and many more. She has worked with such brands as McDonald’s, McCafe, AT&T, Walmart, H&R Block, Hard Rock Cafe, 19 Crimes, SK-II, Shoe Carnival, Boost Mobile and more. All of this experience combined led her to hold a very unique role in Disney’s Oscar Award winning, 60th Animated film, “Encanto.” She not only danced and acted but she also worked as an Animation Reference Consultant alongside choreographer Jamal Sims to help create the musical dance numbers for the film. She has just wrapped another animated film project that she has choreographed named Spellbound.

Kai has always had a love for teaching, inspiring and giving back to dancers of all ages and backgrounds. Her journey started over 15 years when she was a teacher at an after school program in the South Bronx, NYC. Helping children discover dance changed her life and she kept it close to her heart because she also came from an underserved community in Queens, NY. Her focus as an educator is to bridge the gap between choreography and freestyle so that you can find your authentic voice as a dance artist and understand how to bring a story to life through dance. In Kai’s class, you can expect to learn some of the many dance elements of House, Hip Hop, Freestyle, Street Jazz, Funk, Latin and Waacking, all with the goal of getting you to understand what it takes to become a master performer. Kai’s mission is to help you elevate your performance as a storyteller in order to stand out whether you are alone in a cypher or on a world stage with hundreds of others. Her workshops focus on and enhance skills such as Movement musicality & dynamics, Character development, Freestyle technique and Choreography Performance. You will leave Kai’s workshops feeling inspired, open minded and pushed to the limit of your creativity with new ideas and vocabulary to approach your work moving forward!
