Lynnett Parris

Lynnett Parris

Lynnett Parris was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. As a child, she took an interest in singing, writing, and, of course, dance! Parris has been performing since the age of seven. Her dance style is a combination of hip-hop, jazz, dancehall, and Afro movements. In 2013, she started her own after school dance program, Flash 4 Achievement, which focused on providing a safe space for children in the Crown Heights community and allowing them to grow creatively through art. This led to her creating and coaching a dance team at Public School 221, Stars and Starlets, for the past four years. This is just the start of Parris’s career as an instructor and mentor. She hopes to spread love and positivity through art and the close relationships she has built in her community.
