Mohneesha has performed and choreographed for various different dance groups and companies but her joy comes from teaching dance to those that wouldn't normally attend dance classes in a studio setting. Mrs. Washington believes that every child no matter their socioeconomic background should have access to the art of dance.
Mrs. Washington was married July 18, 2009 to her wonderful Husband Ronny and she has two beautiful daughters Lyric and Ziva. Mrs. Washington's family is VERY important to her and you should see them at all of her events and activities!
