JoDee was a B-girl for over fifteen years and was a founding member and co-artistic director of the dance company, Solid State Breakdance. She has judged prestigious international break battles as well as organized large-scale Breaking events locally in Montreal. She also ran a dance studio for seven years that served as a hub for Breaking in Montreal, while simultaneously touring internationally with Solid State Breakdance to urban and contemporary dance festivals.
JoDee’s current artistic practice explores the intersection between Videogames and Dancing. In her master’s degree, JoDee dissected the impact that interface and notation have on learning dance in videogames. She considers herself a Movement Designer, exploring the expressive potential of game-feel by designing control schemes and dance game experiences that help drive the narrative of a game through shaping the psychosomatic experience of the player.
