Imani Amos

Amos grew up on the Southside of Chicago but attended school on the westside at Providence St. Mel School.  She is thankful for having both experienced the south and west sides of Chicago because those experiences sculpted her growth and made her who she is.  Imani studied West African dance since the age of 5 and was a company member Alyo Children’s Dance Theatre for over 10 years.

Amos attended Washington University and dances/choreographs with Afriky Lolo, a West African dance company under the direction of Diadie Bathily.   She is also the choreographer for a West African dance team at Betty Shabazz Academy.  In 2012, Imani decided to return home to Chicago and follow her passion for graphic design at the Illinois Institute of Art – Tinley Park, where she is currently attending.
