About the Co-Founders
With over 14 years in the dance industry, Beau Fournier has performed professionally,
working with artists such as Missy Elliot, Tony Braxton, Yelle and Jennifer Lopez, also appearing on Disney’s Shake it up, Honey 2, Hell’s Kitchen, Fox’s Mobbed, Secret Life of An American Teenager, and America’s Got talent. The most pivotal point in his career was when he appeared on America’s Best Best Dance Crew with the astound group Fanny Pak. Beau then took his career into a new path of choreographing, teaching and directing by creating his own professional company named Maker Empire. He also has choreographed and directed for BMW, 2012 Summer Olympics, ABC Mouse, Karmin, and Afrojack just to name a few. Being able to dance, instruct, direct in many countries like the Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and many cities throughout the US has been the most enlightening journey in his career to bring all experiences in his ever-growing curriculum. All of this experience, in conjunction with his Bachelors of Science and Health Education from California State University, Northridge qualifies him to be a unique leader in the dance community. After investing heavily into the dance program at Jayvee Dance Center for the past 6 years, he is ready to take on ownership and artistically direct Elements Dance Space. His experience and network will help the new space to excel and grow.
