Zakiya Alta Lee
Modern, Jazz, Contemporary
Zakiya is a woman who never stops moving! She graduated from the prestigious Florida State University School of Visual Arts and Dance and was awarded a scholarship to the Dance Theatre of Harlem in New York.
After receiving a BFA degree in dance and a minor in business, Zakiya explored the world of sports entertainment. She was invited to join the NBA Atlanta Hawks dance team eventually becoming a team captain, choreographer, and coach for the Jr. Hawks. This experience would lead to the venture that kickstart her own company Z Pro Prep®; an intensive training camp for Pro NFL/NBA/NHL/MLB teams as dancers and cheerleaders.
Zakiya moved to Los Angeles where she filmed three national commercials, two films, and a television show. She was the executive producer and sold her first television pilot to E! Entertainment. Her many years of performing have taken her to St. Petersburg, Russia; Prague, Czech Republic; Monterrey, Mexico; Taipei, Taiwan, and various cities in China.
Currently, Zakiya is expanding Z Pro Prep® into multiple cities. With placements on professional sports teams such as the Charlotte Hornets, Carolina Panthers, LA Lakers, Atlanta Hawks, and NY Jets, Z is determined to reach as many women as possible to encourage and uplift all by spreading the message that "You Are Enough!"
We are thrilled that Zakiya can share her passion for dance at NCDI.
