Keeley Kaukimoce, a professional Christian hip hop dancer and speaker from Los Angeles, will appear at the Groton Youth Rally Nov. 13 night at the Groton Area High School Arena.
The rally begins at 7 p.m.
Kaukimoce has gained recognition as a singer, songwriter, dancer, choreographer and a style-locking teacher. She is a member of the female crew Beat Freaks, who placed second on Season 3 of “America’s Best Dance Crew,” and a core member of the Groovaloos. With the Beat Freaks, she is known as Lockn’ Key.
Kaukimoce has worked in countless music videos and live performances with such artists as Justin Bieber, P. Diddy, the Black-Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson and Run DMC. She also appeared in “Shake It Up,” “You Got Served,” “Legally Blonde,” “Honey 2,” “Go For It” and received the Master Locking Student Award.
When Kaukimoce fully surrendered her life to Jesus Christ, her career took on a new meaning. “Her goal is to edify and equip those who feel ‘lost’ or “don’t belong,’ ” said a news release. “Keeley shares about confronting fear and self-judgment, and how to gain self-confidence, and how to have a deeper walk and level of worship and intimacy with Jesus Christ.”
Tickets are $5, both in advance and at the door. They're available at the Groton Dairy Queen and Anchors of Faith in Aberdeen. For information, call 605-397-7752.
