Raphael Thomas, is a professional entertainer, movement artist, and instructor currently residing in Los Angeles, California. Jamaican born and Jersey native, Raphael has always had an affinity for the arts. Whether it be through movement or the canvas, he has always learned to explore the world through this medium. Since the age of six, he’s been trained in the classical styles of ballet, jazz, modern, and tap. These teachings then propelled him into the realms of street jazz, jazz funk, and hip hop. Taking this knowledge and training to LA, he built his career working with prestige artists such as Janet Jackson, Chris Brown, Beyonce, Usher, Mariah Carey, Kelly Rowland, Megan Thee Stallion, Busta Rhymes, Pharrell Williams and many more. Through his journey of training, mentorships, and continued hard work, he strongly believes in the power of spreading knowledge gained with others.
“As an artist, you hold the key to freedom. Freedom begets knowledge. With that knowledge, it is our responsibility to share with the intent to develop the light within others.”
