Jakevis Thomason

Greenville, SC

BFA Class of 2020

Where did you train?

I trained at Starz Artistic Performing Company.

What inspires you?

My inspiration sometimes comes from the people around me, but also from discovering new movement and never settling. Different genres of music also inspire the direction I take my movement (especially if Beyoncé is singing anything, I’m dancing too).

Describe yourself in three words.

Social. Motivated. Humble.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I am a huge fan of Beyoncé and could listen/watch her 24/7 for the rest of my life and never get tired.

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?

Being a part of USC Kaufman means being a part of a program where there is so much room to grow and become more educated about the art of dance. I couldn’t be any more grateful for this opportunity!
