of the earliest champions of the dance style, Maya has helped to foster the
growth and popularity of Dancehall dance and movement in Sydney and
Australia since the mid 1990’s. Maya toured with Dance Master Kofi Walker
from Jamaica to feature as principal dancer of his company & The Afro
Caribbean Dance Theatre, touring Australia performing and holding Master
Classes in Dance Schools and Universities. Maya went on to study under and
work with other well known influences of global and black dance throughout
her career such as Paul Saliba, Shirley Sweeney, Naisda, QLD Folkloric
