Hailing from France, Mai Lê is an arts educator, dance choreographer and deejay who relocated to New York City in 2009.
Through her passion for dance, Mai Lê has had the opportunity to perform and/or teach in such countries as France, Democratic Republic of Congo, the UK, Vietnam, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Slovakia, Holland, Russia, Belgium and throughout the United States. In 2012 she joined RHAW and soon after RHPM (Rennie Harris PureMovement), the longest running Hip-Hop dance touring company created in 1991, with which she traveled to Central Africa to serve as a US Cultural Ambassador in 2013. She was also touring Europe with Detroit music producer Theo Parrish in 2014 as a dancer in his live band "The Unit".
Mai Lê deejays the same way that she dances: raw, honest, fluid, bold, unapologetic. She has played venues such as Starvue (Brooklyn), Meridian 23 (NYC), La Machine (Paris), and holds a monthly residency at LP N' Harmony (Brooklyn) with her collective Four On The Floor.
Driven by her talents, Mai Lê has been relentlessly promoting underground Hip-Hop & House cultures locally and internationally, helping bring awareness to their positive impact on the community. She also strongly advocates for the harmonious marriage of dance and music, primarily through her event “LayeRhythm, A Jam Session of Music & Dance”, created in March 2015 in NYC, and now expanding to other cities such as Detroit and Philadelphia.
