Airbnb partnered with multi award-winning choreographer and performance director Tanisha Scott on an exclusive Music & Movement Experience in Los Angeles. Here, she shares her LA go-tos.

CHOREOGRAPHER AND PERFORMANCE DIRECTOR Tanisha Scott has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry. That video with the viral dance moves? Chances are Scott had a hand in it. “What excites me is each person’s unique energies, abilities, and strengths,” says the Toronto-born artist who spends much of her time in LA. “I look for what they already have in them and simply enhance that. Artists at the highest level are constantly evolving, and so I get to grow and change with them. It’s never the same thing twice.”

Scott, who choreographed “Hotline Bling”,  describes herself as a sponge, heavily influenced by “culture, people, the times, and all different genres of music. The music is what inspires me first and from there I just try to speak that language.” Currently in the process of creative directing a couple of world tours, the former backup dancer who also works with Hollywood celebrities is forever a student of her art form. “I’m always exploring new movement, sounds, styles, and worlds I’m unfamiliar with,” she says. “When you truly love something, you don’t ever want to stop learning about it.”

THE EXPERIENCE

“Dance, sweat, laugh, learn and grow with me!” was the directive for Scott’s Airbnb Experience, a 1.5-hour intimate choreography session held at Flux Rebellion studios in LA’s Fairfax neighborhood. Dance enthusiasts of all levels learned one of Scott’s original routines, leaving sweaty and smiling, with some killer dance moves under their belts.
