Akil is Tasha's right hand man, the main MC and masked dancer of The Get Down.
As a performing artist and theater professor of Mask and Art Philosophy, he alchemizes his sensitivity to space to guide the dance floor into new dimensions. He can be heard shouting powerful mantras on the mic, and felt via percussive sounds and resonance to harmonize + heal.
AJ is an NYC based percussionist and avid movement enthusiast.
When he's not firing up the dance floor with the thump of a djembe, he can be found doing high kicks and bringing happy mosh pit vibes to the middle of the madness. To him, music is life. As long as the rhythm is rocking and bodies are moving, all is well.
Allie is the producer and creative marketing director for The Get Down. She runs the show behind-the-scenes so that y'all can have a magical, wild, sweaty, transformational, bass-thumping dancefloor experience.
She's also the owner and senior consultant of Something Greater Social, a boutique social media agency for purpose-driven entrepreneurs who want to make the world a better place. Allie also teaches yoga in Brooklyn and internationally.
