Laurieann Gibson is a legend at what she does. Coming up as an extremely well-respected choreographer and creative director, the Toronto native brings her unwavering energy and talents into the entertainment industry in so many ways. Back when Diddy’s Bad Boy Records were at their prime, Gibson was the one pushing and coaching all the girls in Making the Band to their greatest potential. In 2010, she won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography for Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” music video. Most recently she’s been working on the 16th Season of Fox’ So You Think You Can Dance.
Beyond the accolades, Laurieann’s biggest priority is to give back to the dance community. She’s worked with PULSE tours and teaching programs such as Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy acting as a huge role model and inspiration to children all across the world. Now, Laurieann stops by Power 106 for an exclusive interview on our Now You Know series.
When asked what her favorite Drake song was, she states, “I don’t have a favorite Drake song because I’ve been waiting for him to put my name in a song — since I got to New York too. Mother got to Uptown Records before all ya’ll but I love Drake’s music, but I don’t have a particular at the time. Perhaps when you put my name in one of your songs.”
Watch above as Laurieann answers questions about her brand Boom Kack, her favorite person to teach choreography to, and best memory from Making the Band.
