Ja' Bowen Dixon
Ja’Bowen Dixon a.k.a. Jaybo has been performing since the age of six. He began performing at student showcases and assemblies throughout the year at his grade school in downtown Chicago. From there, he began going to auditions and doing movies with his brother Bril, the combination of that, and the skills he had obtained from doing shows at school, is where Jaybo developed a love for the arts. At age 11 his mother enrolled him into Sundance studios, a local performing arts company. There he took his first African, Hip Hop, Caribbean, and vocal classes. He continued to take classes there until he was 15. In late 2000, his brother Bril founded the group M.A.D.D. (making a difference dancing) Rhythms and recruited Jaybo and their younger sister Star to be in the group, that was Jaybo’s first real tap experience. Jaybo continues to dance and study with M.A.D.D. Rhythms today. Now at age 25 Jaybo has appeared ontelevision (local news, so you think you can dance, etc.), film (save the last dance, shall we dance etc.)and multiple shows across both the city and country. Jaybo has been featured in Dance Spirit magazine, ads forLeo’s Dancewear and he teaches at some of the most prestigious dance studios in the city of Chicago.
