Corey Action was blessed with the ability to teach and choreograph and began teaching at the tender age of seven. However, Action’s technical training began at Skyline High in Oakland where he studied jazz dance, modern dance, and stage production. Over the years he has utilized many different types of music in bringing hip-hop to well-known gyms, respected dance studios and public schools. He has always been able to transform beginning dancers into dynamic dancers with his skillful choreography. He realized this was indeed a gift from God, which could not be overlooked.
Action is not only dancing his way into the hearts of many fans and supporters of hip-hop, but he is also singing, writing and acting his way in as well. Action started singing in school and church choirs at the age of twelve and moved onto rapping soon after. A local rap group name Funky Fresh Inc. spotted Action at a school dance and with no hesitation hired Action to dance giving him the nickname “C-Style.”
Action has choreographed and done Artist Development for a diverse group of artist’s such as Korean super star Lee Seung Chul, Hip Hop Youngster Mac Mall, Latin dance diva Angelina, Filipino pop sensation Jocelyn Enriquez, and SOULTRAIN & GRAMMY AWARD WINNER Melanie Fiona. He has traveled the globe including Brazil, Japan, Italy, Canada Germany, Romania, and the Philippines working as a producer, costume designer, casting agent, make-up consultant, choreographer and dancer. Action has worked to develop many up and coming artists. Producer-song writer Dwayne Wiggins of Tony Toni Tone and producer-song writer Robbie Nevel hired Action to work on many of the acts that they produce. Action has even choreographed for the internationally known Korean Dance Company Nool, with award winning choreographer Ko Chun-Sik. Usher has also recruited Action to Judge the Usher New Look Camp youth entertainer program. Action is definitely a man of many trades and one of the most promising entertainers in the business.===========================================================
Misa Malone ......is the daughter of a singer, who was, naturally, the daughter of a singer, and was introduced to the joy of singing at a very young age. Raised in the Church and singing lead in front of The Sunshine Band at the tender age of 7 years old, singing became the way to express love and joy; the love of God, and the joy of living and all that it entails. So, Misa sang. She sang at Church, in elementary school, junior high, and so on, always singing; and while singing was something that she has always done and enjoyed, it is from the music that Misa derives true pleasure. Music became a living thing in Misa's life and became something that physically moved her. She was an accomplished dancer and model, and through her teens and early adult hood, was featured in several music videos by prominent Bay Area Artists. It was in her early adulthood when Misa decided it was time to explore the art of making music.
"Awesome" and "Awe-Inspiring" are just two of the words Misa's audience use to describe her performances and her amazing vocal talent. An onstage performer with the longest running musical in the world, Beach Blanket Babylon, she was blessed to perform for the Legendary Tony Bennett, and he blew her kisses!! “That whole event was surreal. I mean, this was TONY BENNETT, blowing me kisses and telling me how wonderful I was. I don’t think my feet touched the ground for the rest of the day. Honestly, I have had some amazing opportunities working with Beach Blanket Babylon. I am truly blessed.”=========================================================
