Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Mr. Morris’ love and passion for dance started at the age of eleven where he pursued training and performance in high school. He was a competitor for five years with the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC). His repartee with the Arts flourished with a spot in the televised competition “Dancing Dynamite” (2008) where he placed second overall. Consequently, armed with exposure and a growing success in the Arts, Mikhail was awarded scholarships to attend the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (School of Dance) where he studied for two years acquiring training in modern dance and traditional dance forms.
Mr. Morris graduated with a Dance Certification in 2009 and is thankful that his journey, passion and opportunity for further development have led him to Ballet Creole. From there he continued his journey, and at this present day his dream continues with COBA and the ‘wind in the leaves collective’.
