Jojo (she/her) began her dancing journey later than most at the age of 22 and was quickly immersed into ballroom dancing and house clubs in Washington, DC. About a decade later she founded an organization called Diggs Deeper, a therapeutic dance event that centered culture and healing. 6 years and 350 events later in Nov of 2019, she wanted to shift the focus from the individual to the community, and thus she founded Freedom Movement. In the past 13 months she has been working diligently to dismantle her socialization, inherent bias and racism and advocating that others do this imperative inner work and healing as well. Jojo is not the leader of the organization and proudly stands black lives, constantly working to honor her position as a guest in black culture. Her current work focus is in internal healing for authentic expression in movement.
