As a professional dancer and choreographer, Brandee Evans has worked with notables like Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi, Kelly Rowland, Snoop Dogg, and Katy Perry to name a few. Brandee dances like nobody’s business and she does it all while rocking a fierce pair of six-inch pumps! What’s even more impressive is the former assistant director to the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies dance team shows women around the world (from London to Japan) how to drop it like it’s hot in heels while finding their inner sex goddess with her series of dance classes, “Hip Hop in Heels.” And it’s all for an amazing cause.
A portion of the proceeds go toward Brandee’s mother, Diana Harrington, who’s currently staying in a rehabilitation center for multiple sclerosis because her recent injuries make it unsafe for her stay home alone. Diagnosed back in 2003, Harrington, who used to walk four miles a day, has become immobile from the waist down as a result of the disease.
