I decided to give you guys something a little different today. I'd like to introduce you to Chonique Sneed. Chonique began her entertainment career at the young age of 8. A Los Angeles Native, born in the center of Hollywood, she was destined to entertain with a natural passion for performing. Beginning her career as a child actress, she worked on commercials, kid variety specials, and television shows in her early years. Always having a natural ability and interest in dance, she went on to dance in movies, world tours, and countless music videos; working with artists such as: Missy Elliott, Eve, Gwen Stefani, PDiddy, and Janet Jackson, to name a few.
Chonique holds a special place in my heart because upon my arrival in L.A. back in 2002 she was one of the first choreographers that noticed my talent and consistently gave me corrections and feedback(which is rare in Hollywood).
Many of her students and fans in L.A. are familiar with the amazing duo that is Chonique and Lisette. Lisette Bustamante is another dancer/choreographer that has worked for every major artist known to man and completes the unstoppable duo.
Seriously, if you've ever seen a dance video with a major artist then most likely Lisette was in the video.
Chonique will soon branch into the music industry with the release of her first solo rap effort under the stage name "The Hollywood Dutchess".
I'm excited about her project because Chonique understands the perormance element and will definitely bring it every time she hits the stage. I can't think of many rappers that will give you a full show with the exception of Missy Elliot.
Chonique has put together an amazing reel to share her life and work with her fans old and new. Get into it below! And if you're in L.A. on March 29th then you can check out Chonique and Lisette's Master Class in Hollywood.
