Chaniece Holmes, hailing from Maryland, holds a B.A. in Dance with a distinction in Arts Administration from Goucher College in Baltimore, MD. Her love for the performing arts brought her to Chicago to continue her wonderful journey with dance, as a professional Performing Artivist with Red Clay Dance. In addition to performing, Chaniece teaches throughout the city of Chicago; having done residency programs at Henderson Elementary and Wendell E. Green Elementary, served as a dance instructor at the Iona Calhoun School of Ballet and serves currently as a Teaching Artivist at the Red Clay Dance Academy. Being a professional dancer, Chaniece has a deep passion for the arts and it is her primary aspiration to remain engaged in the arts community. Chaniece is very excited to be working with I Am We to not only help empower the community, but to also empower the teaching artists who give of themselves selflessly.
