This intimate dance conversation series continues via Facebook Live-stream with host Alexander Jones and featured dance artist Deisha A. King. Deisha is one of three dancers currently taking part in “The Works Dance Residency”, a months long process happening in The [email protected] Ellis Gallery as part of The [email protected] Dance Hall.

Deisha attended University of South Florida, where she received her BFA in Dance and minor in Nutrition. During her time at USF, Deisha worked closely with — and performed works by — Robert Moses, John Parks, Alex Ketley, Gesel Mason, Alonzo King, Gierre Godley, and Kevin Iega Jeff, among others.

Inspired by her Senior advocacy project at USF, Deisha has developed a passion for community outreach and engagement through the arts. Upon graduating from USF in 2018, Deisha joined Tampa City Ballet for 2 seasons and partnered with the Straz Center for the Performing Arts where she teaches dance education to under served partnership schools and community organizations.
