Kori Ross


Originally from Detroit, MI, Kori Ross started dancing and competing at the age of nine in her hometown studio The Dance Place. Her path to becoming a professional dancer began in 1996 while attending Jazz Dance World Congress in Washington D.C. It was there she received a two year apprentice scholarship to study with Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago. Her training foundation lies in Jazz, Modern, Ballet, along with Tap & Hip-Hop. During that time she performed with GGJDC, as well as dancing in local industries and began sub teaching at the Giordano studio. This was an opportunity that had given her the foundation to be a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer.
Two years later she came to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and became a company member with Pure Gold Productions. It was there she was promoted to lead dancer and co-choreographer at the age of twenty one. For the next five years she performed and choreographed in a number of casinos and shows around the country. This was an experience that she can now reflect on to her students today of what it takes to be a professional dancer.
For the past seventeen years Kori has been a dance educator and national award winning choreographer. She is currently on faculty at Broadway South Dance in Mobile AL, along with being one of the artistic directors of the BSD company.
