Jody Watley. The Making of Dancer.

A concept video takes an idea and focuses on that, in this instance I wanted it to be about the dancers and dance and the freedom of movement interspersed with choreography – it’s not a traditional video which is why I’m not performing the song..and why it’s not the full version of the song, rather a dub mix which suits the dance and concept.

As well – I wanted to do a raw video without fancy lighting, nothing slick and overly stylized; but in a dance studio just like the kids were taking a class or having a party for a sense of authenticity.

If you don’t know by now, I’m an artist that likes to flip the script; not in a controversial way but rather always in a way that reflects where I’m at and not being chained by expectation or past history…always forward.

A Night To Remember At Giorgios.Jody Watley and a Reloaded Shalamar ®

Feel that electricity! Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and I had a blast at our Shalamar Reloaded  debut single release event for “SlowDance” at Bryan Rabin and Adam XII Present: Giorgio’s A Modern Discotheque on the Sunset Strip, July 28, 2015. We worked everyone into an appropriate disco soul funk frenzy in the midst of the glitz, glamour.
