You do you and I'll do me,

I am Kenny J!

Originally from Baltimore Maryland, Kenny J, now a Burlington County NJ resident, is a retired Army First Sergeant and ex-drill Sergeant. In 2004 he was called to serve in IRAQ under Operation Iraqi Freedom and by the grace of God he has since returned and catapulted into becoming a major entity in the R&B/Soul line dance world. He is a member of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated and the Founder and CEO of I am Kenny J Productions, a dance organization that specializes in dance entertainment, performance and instruction.  His organization is established as one of the most philanthropic organizations in the dance community serving the entire Delaware Valley Region in its effort to reach and promote the virtues of line dance.  “Footwork with a Purpose” is its creed and has become a very visible presence in the lives of many.  

A former member of the Dave Bush Dancers out of Philadelphia, PA, his special style of dance and ability to connect with people has provided him the opportunity to perform in various venues throughout the country.  His impact on others, however, reaches far beyond his fancy footwork.  He is recognized by his peers as one of the most prominent instructors in the line dance community with his ability to captivate audiences.  In 2008, he was voted entertainer of the year at the UC Awards, a Maryland line dance awards ceremony.  Kenny J’s success has taken him throughout the country to do workshops and performances, in places like Salina, Kansas at the Smokey Hill River Festival; Columbia, Missouri at the Columbia Arts Festival, Los Angeles, California and a host of others.  In many ways he and his organization are trailblazers doing whatever they can to promote the Delaware-New Jersey-Philadelphia region. His performance team “Sophisticated Funk” has performed throughout the country both competitively and non-competitively in venues like the Virginia Tri State SLYDE, The US Open swing dance competition in Anaheim, California, and the United We Dance family reunion, held in various locations in the Midwest, exciting audiences with their unique dance style.  He has also appeared on the Dr. OZ show teaching the good doctor a Soul Line dance.

While there are many people to credit for his success, Kenny J gives credit first, to his Family and friends for being supportive and willing to give him the opportunity to do all that he does.  He also gives special thanks and credit to Barbara Capaldi of the Atrium Dance Studio; his longtime mentor and friend Mr. Dave Bush; the officers and members of his organization, I am Kenny J Productions; and his many students and patrons that support his endeavors.
