Today we’d like to introduce you to Queen Miller.
Queen, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started dancing at a very early age I was dancing for my church Hosley Temple CME, and as I got older, of course, I start branching out and dancing with different teams and organizations including teams at the schools I attended. Once I was finished with school I seen that dance was way more the extracurricular activity to me.
That’s when I started to post videos of me dancing but not in your normal dance studio but making full-blown production/visuals, also started connecting with other Atlanta natives from different sides of town which opened opportunities for me from dance at events for V103, Learical Jones plays, and Superbowl53 that took place here in my city Atlanta, GA, but I come from a family that made sure the art of dance was around me so naturally, it stuck with me.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth ride and it’s still bumpy from time to time. Dancing is one of the hardest careers to tap into. One is because it is the lowest-paid performance jobs. I heard Jennifer Lopez say when she was dancing on In Living Color how she was still pretty much struggling. They are not paying dancers how they should and dancers are used for everything music videos, live performances, TV shows, etc.
And dancing is ten times harder because your using your body 24/7 that’s a lot of wear and tear so for this to be one of the lowest-paid arts yes dance is a art just like singing acting, and rapping it can be stressful because me personally I’m always thinking to myself what can I do to set myself apart from other dancers to try to make a platform to were us as dancers get treated equally on a pay scale that’s my ultimate goal it’s so much bigger than me.
We’d love to hear more about your work.
I create dances and visuals; if you view my social media page I’m not the average dance choreographer that’s just putting out dance videos in studios or outside. For the ones who are I’m not downing anyone but I take pride in being a creative director as well I’m all about visuals and themes. I’m giving videos that most singers and rappers would give you but it’s all dancing and I take pride in that because that’s what sets me apart, but very soon I’ll be including dance classes as well and cooperating that in different dance scene in my videos as well that my 2020 resolution.
What were you like growing up?
Very outgoing but very mellow at the same time. Definitely fun to be with especially at parties because everybody knew I was going to dance, but I wasn’t going to hold my tongue for nobody I was definitely a tough girl but also very sweet and delicate. I was not going to let you run over the person who was shy or didn’t talk much I was always about showing respect for others.
