Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, 28-year old Parris Goebel has become a global sensation.
Interested in dance at an early age, Goebel began taking hop-hop lessons when she was only 10 years old. Five years later, when she was 15, she started the all-female dance group ReQuest with four of her friends. A year later, Goebel and her team traveled from New Zealand to the United States for the Monsters of Hip Hop Dance Convention, where Goebel was selected to dance in the convention’s final performance. At the convention’s conclusion, Goebel left school and began concentrating on dance full time.
There’s been no looking back since; over the past decade, Goebel’s success has garnered unprecedented international attention and acclaim. In 2012, she begin a long-lasting work relationship with Jennifer Lopez, choreographing her Goin’ In music video, her American Idol performance, as well as the star’s world tour, all in the same year. Goebel’s work with Lopez will reach unrivaled heights later this year, where she is choreographing the singer’s 2020 halftime show performance at Super Bowl LIV, with an expected viewing audience of over 100 million people.
Goebel’s name is synonymous with some of the biggest stars of the most recent times, with work for Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Kanye West, PSY, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Little Mix, Ciara, Jason Derulo, Big Bang, & Sam Smith all under her belt. In addition, she choreographed Justin Bieber’s music video for Sorry, which garnered more than 3 billion views on YouTube and is the 8th-most viewed video on the site. In 2016, she won Female Choreographer of the Year and Live Performance of the Year at the World of Dance Awards. Earlier this year in 2020, she was appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit, for her services to dance.
Goebel is poised to soon add another craft under her already impressive list of talents; filmmaking. Sony Pictures has tapped the star to direct “Murder on the Dance Floor,” an adaptation of her own original street-dance-based production. The film will serve as Goebel’s feature film directorial debut.
