Lady Walquer Vereen
Dance Teacher, Co-Founder of Dance Collective

Lady Walquer Vereen was born in Harlem, and got her start in dancing there.  She was discouraged from pursuing a career in dancing as the teachers considered her awkward.  She also considered a career as an opera singer but that offered few opportunities for blacks at the time.  She got a lucky break and eventually joined the tour of HAIR which brought her to Southern California.  The sister of Ben Vereen, she has had a successful career as a dancer and choreographer and is committed to her role as a teacher in the community.
