Kerine Jean-Pierre started her training at age 8 in Afro Caribbean Folklore Traditional Dance taught by Mr. Louinis of louines- Louinis Haitian Dance Theatre. Her training continued at the music & arts conservatory program. As a young adult, she became a scholarship student turned company member under the mentorship of Brigid Baker ( whole projects/ 6th st dance studio) performing both classical and contemporary ballet original works through a grassroots lens. She was in pursuit of a career in the commercial industry which led her to train under Kehynde Hill, an already established choreographer & dancer in the hip hop Miami movement. Under his mentorship, Kerine worked in many facets of the on/off camera realm such as music videos, awards shows, stage performances, films, musical & non-musical theater, tv commercials both local & national, and tv network dramas. Kerine is currently teaching Afro theory, which celebrates afro beat based foundation/ vocabulary combined with hip hop & contemporary nuances which propelled the short film “Calling Me” which premiered in Miami Light Project’s ScreenDance Miami 2023.
