How to become a DJ in New York City
The dance studio in Queens where DJ Ali Mohamed will perform on Monday night is one of several places in the city where you can perform for the first time.
The Brooklyn dance studio is the only one in the country with a dedicated DJ program, and that’s where Mohamed will take to the streets Monday night to help spread the word.
He’s a part-time DJ, but this is the first performance he’s done in his hometown.
That’s because he’s a licensed medical practitioner, but he’s not just any DJ, he’s the world’s first licensed dance studio DJ.
He has a lot of different genres.
He’s the mainstay in hip-hop, hip-dance, jazz, jazz-funk, hip hop, R&B, and R&am.
He also hosts shows for the hip-Hop group Zikra.
The Brooklyn dance scene is growing, and he says he feels like he’s been here since the beginning.
It’s kind of the start of my career, he says.
When I came here, I had no experience.
I didn’t have the skills to make music.
I just started DJing.
Now I have some experience and I want to help create a new scene in New Yorks.
I want people to feel like they’re part of the community.
