Born in Jamaica and raised in Florida, dancer M.J. Harper has a uniquely hypnotic style. He trained for four years at the New World School of the Arts in Miami before launching his career at the Alvin Alley dance company in New York City.
His passion for movement drove him to take the leap to join Studio Wayne McGregor (formerly known as Random Dance) in London. While in the U.K., he met and began working with fashion designer Grace Wales Bonner as her muse, choreographer, and friend. His creative drive pulled him to Berlin, where he now lives.
