I’m Zakiya Alta Lee and I’m a southern belle. I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. I graduated Cum Laude from Florida State University. I lived in Atlanta and performed with the Hawks, and then came on over to the west side (California)!
I dance/choreograph, act–when time permits, create and executive produce television content, and I’m an entrepreneur. My business Z Art of Tease (ZArtofTease.com) is geared towards married and engaged women teaching them customized tease performances for them to do for their husbands. Z Pro Prep (ZProPrep.com) is a NBA/NFL style prep clinic that whips ladies into shape in order to get them ready for their favorite Pro team’s tryouts.(I also work in the la county public school system doing live shows for kids on protecting our environment, and do public speaking mainly to uplift women…but this is extra stuff lol)
Last year I was given the opportunity to be hired on as the guest choreographer/judge for the NBA Atl Hawks Dance/Cheer auditions. This was an amazing opportunity because I got to see EXACTLY what Pro teams are looking for! Not just dance and picking up choreography….but there is a certain way a Pro cheerleader/dancer carries herself. From her look, to her style, to her appearance, to even the way she speaks. ALL of these things are important! The Pros are looking for the total package! I’m tired of seeing girls audition year after year only to still not make the team, and then come back again the next year to endure that heartbreak all over again. Myself, along with some other very talented former NBA and NFL ladies are doing all that we can to give these ladies a real shot at achieving their dreams of going pro!!! God put me here to uplift women…one of the ways I do that is through Z Pro Prep!
I’m currently finishing up some choreography for a musical in LA “Einstein Is a Dummy” directed by Derek Manson, so I’m looking forward to that process. I’m also looking for opportunities to expand Z Pro Prep. Wherever there is a demand for ladies who want to go pro, I’m there! As my grandma Ezelle says, “I don’t know where God is taking me, but I’m enjoying the ride!!”
