Jadell Lee: Shaking Up the World of Dance

What began as just helping his friends, Jadell Lee transformed his passion for helping others into his profession.  His goal of growing his own social media presence taught him about how to reach a larger audience, and he took his newfound knowledge and shared it with his friends. This eventually lead to booking master classes, intensives, and workshops all around the country – becoming his new professional journey.  “I started touring with dance competitions and dance conventions, and I started sharing that information with my friends. At the end of the day, my goal was to share. I saw transparency as an opportunity for all of us to grow from there.”

What Makes Him Different?

Jadell is a standout in the coaching industry due to his multi-creative background. He extends all of his gifts to push himself and his clients forward.  He has many of his own coaches so he can continue to learn and share his constantly evolving knowledge with his own clients.  The most important goal for him is to remain a spokesperson for Mental Health, highlighting social-emotional learning.

“My mission is to help people see that your versatility your diversity is a skill to be able to operate in multiple areas, effectively and expeditiously is a skill that you can develop and grow into that can be utilized in more than one area of your life.”

How He’s Changing the Dance World

Jadell’s main goal is to incorporate social-emotional learning.  He talks about how it’s important to build an “authentically balanced lifestyle”.  We hear a lot about sustainability in reference to different branches of pop culture, but less about sustainability within ourselves.  Jadell shares the significance of a balanced lifestyle to promote not only wellbeing but growth.  This understanding of what you need and finding a balance affects your professional life as well as your personal life.

What More Needs to be Changed in the Dance Industry?

Mental health awareness and emotional health awareness is Jadell’s main focus on what needs to change, which you can see from his own incorporation of social-emotional learning.  He shares that he’s taken what he experienced from his own childhood and is bringing the struggles to light. “I remember growing up as a young dancer. I have very few people check in with me as I struggled with depression as I struggled to find my identity as my mental and emotional health wavered. I had the joy of performing and the joy of learning when it came to dance, but I had very few people in my corner concerned with my wellbeing.”  He is not only there to instruct his students – as any dancer would know, there are high expectations of relentless hard work- but Jadell makes sure that as an instructor he checks in with his students to make sure they’re in a good place emotionally and mentally.

What’s Next?

Jadell continues to grow his coaching business while maintaining his status as a mental health advocate.  He has a wide, diverse outreach that puts him in front of people from all backgrounds.  All of which can learn from him and his coaching on social-emotional learning and personal sustainability.

“I meet not only dancers and instructors, but leaders in other industries who are talented, stuck, and frustrated that need a little help building a sustainable career. I have been coaching dancers and dance educators around the country serving as a mentor and helping others advance in their careers.  Now, in launching a coaching program, I help others in various industries use their story to master areas of deficiency within their respective fields by helping them develop vision, strategy, goals for development both personally and professionally, and move into a position of excellence.”
