ABOUT MISS PRISSY
Classically trained, Miss Prissy started lessons at the age of four, learning everything from ballet to jazz to tap. She discovered hip-hop dancing at 13 and enjoyed its expressiveness, but didn’t really begin to take her art seriously until after high school, when she began teaching it to kids. It was at one of these lessons that a student introduced her to krump, the new form of dance in the late ’90s that was becoming popular in L.A., and brought her to a session. Miss Prissy was struck by its wild energy, and soon joined in on the performances and competitions herself. Following her appearance in the 2005 film “Rize,” Miss Prissy (called “the Queen of Krump” in the film) began touring with the likes of Snoop Dogg, the Game and Madonna. In 2012, Miss Prissy started a street dance company called The Underground, featuring Lil “C”, another founder of krump, and a guest judge on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance.”
