Originally from Highpoint, North Carolina, Ms. Bootywork always had a passion for dance. She started her dancing career at 2-years-old and thanks her parents for giving her a start. “I created my own show for my parents when I was younger,” says Jackson. “My mom held a flashlight on me and my dad played my favorite song while I strolled down the stairs. My dad told my mom to go sign me up for dance that day.”
From there, Jackson has not stopped dancing. She moved to Miami in 2009 and accomplished every dancers dream: to be a Miami Heat dancer. For a year, she had the once in a lifetime chance to dance on a professional team in sold out areas. “Learning new styles of dance and being able to bond drama free with 24 other dancers was indescribable,” says Jackson. While dancing for the Miami Heat was her dream, it didn’t last for long. “I only did a year because honestly they don’t pay what you think,” says Jackson. Seeking more opportunity and a thicker wallet, she started Bootywork™ in 2013.
