Akeem is originally from Jamaica and moved to New York City at age 8. He found ballroom dance in college where he met his current partner Victoria. They quickly progressed as competitive dancers, and together they took over as head coaches and instructors of a competitive ballroom team in Buffalo, New York in 2017. While running the team, they continued to dance competitively together, consistently winning top awards in competitions across the Northeast. He is so excited for this opportunity to share his experience and love of dance at Fred Astaire Naples!
