Always an avid student of hip-hop, LaMia began to delve into the dance style more intensely after joining Face Da Phlave, a Hip Hop company that focuses on pure hip-hop movement and positivity. Through Face Da Phlave, LaMia has trained in the styles of locking, popping, breaking, and house. She has also performed as a dancer for the Garden State Dance Festival’s repertoire company, Philadelphia's Putty Dance Project, and Project Dance in Washington D.C. LaMia has also performed and taught internationally with a non-profit arts organization in Philadelphia. There, she was the Director of dance program for youth and co-artistic director and writer of stage productions "Isola's Champion" and "Love's Journey". She and the group utilized dance and theater as an instrument of education for young women in Liberia, West Africa. Now a resident of Atlanta, LaMia has choreographed for the National Black Arts Festival and performed a T Lang Dance work.
