DESHAWN DE PRINCE
Deshawn Hawthorne, known as Deshawn Da Prince, was originally a hip-hop freestyle dancer with knowledge in styles such as waving, gliding, popping, and tutting.
Deshawn was enrolled into Devor Dance Center in Jamaica Queens, NY. at age five. His first classes were jazz, ballet, and African, but five years later he was introduced to hip-hop, with a group from the same dance school named Da F.I.R.M. He was the youngest dancer in the group but kept up with the other young adults. Deshawn later on joined a crew of boys who named themselves G.I.B (Go In Brother) who labeled him as a choreographer for the group.
Deshawn has worked with artists such as Chris Brown, Jidenna, Keke Palmer, Lil Mama, and more.
As Deshawn went on experiencing the choreography world, he then started submitting to shows such as Carnival NY, Sybarite, Love is Love, and WOD N.J. where he has presented his latest works. He also started developing artists and creative directing through the experience of doing such shows.
Deshawn is a choreographer, dancer, dance coach, and artist developer who is signed to MSA and runs a New York Hip-Hop company named “Royal Thieves,” a high energy dance crew who just won third place in the U.S division at World Of Dance Finals in California!
