CHOREOGRAPHER & ELITE INSTRUCTOR
O’Livia, a professional dancer and choreographer, puts the POWER in powerhouse. She is a professional on and off the dance floor, and she she puts 110% into all of her passions and endeavors.
To pursue a career in entrepreneurship, O’Livia retired from dancing in the NBA for the Washington Wizards after completing two amazing seasons on the court. She earned the Spirit Award two consecutive seasons— voted on by her teammates. She also received the “Always on 10” superlative from her coach. O’Livia danced alongside Christie as a Wizards Girl, but this wasn’t where their friendship blossomed.
O’Livia danced alongside Christie on the University of Kentucky Dance Team. This is where O’Livia was able to hone her style as a hip hop dancer and shape herself into the dancer, performer, and choreographer she is today.
When she’s not killing it on the dance floor, O’Livia is mentoring young girls, helping people find homes in the Metro DC area, and organizing her planner— living out her passions.

DJ & MASTER MUSIC MIXER
Andi edits, mixes, and masters dance tracks for Powerhouse Danceworks’ choreography. She loves making music for dancers and is proud to help bring movement to life with sound.
As a trained singer and former poms competitor, Andi understands the importance of having the perfect mix for a performance or competition. Her love of singing and dance sparked her interest in DJing after years of finding great songs but wishing they were a different length, tempo, or style to fit certain moods and uses. Using various audio editing tools, she blends popular songs with original sounds to create customized mixes. Her goal is to ensure that no client’s vision is ever limited by the music - Andi will change song speed and length, mix multiple tracks together, and add in custom sounds until a mix is perfect for the choreography.
When she's not editing dance mixes for Powerhouse, she can be found DJing in DC and singing for various music projects. In 2017, she provided vocals for the dance track "Sirens" released through Original Genius Records and "Las Vegas" by DJ Marx. She hopes to sing on more records, DJ more events, and make as many dance mixes as possible!
