Kumari Suraj’s artistic versatility and passion for movement have established her as one of the leading figures in the global street dance community.
Kumari was the first dancer/choreographer to share the styles of House, Waacking & Vogue to the country of South Africa in 2006. Her students are now the country's leading choreographers, dancers and studio owners.
Kumari was the first community activist to build Whacking/Waacking communities in Los Angeles, London, Denmark, Malaysia, South Africa and Portland, Oregon. She has since shared her gifts and love of art with almost 30 different countries.
Kumari Suraj founded dance companies including international group The Waackers, London Waacktitioners, India’s House of Suraj, and Los Angeles’s Jungle Jills.
With a mission of spreading the joy of dance to countries often untouched by the street dance scene, Kumari has cultivated a reputation as a key educator in Punking, Whacking & Waacking and a vibrant force to be reckoned with in cyphers and battles.
