Today, the Sacramento Kings announced Charm La’Donna, world renowned dancer, choreographer and creative director, will serve as a creative consultant and guest celebrity choreographer for 916 Crew. La’Donna will partner with the three regional studios that have been named the official studios of the Kings, Dance Elite All Stars, Hype Dance Studio and Kast Academy of the Arts, to choreograph routines for the debut season of the team’s gender inclusive hip-hop group, 916 Crew.

La’Donna, who began her career at 17 touring with Madonna, was the only female on Kendrick Lamar’s tour and has previously worked with Pharrell, Britney Spears, Rosalia and more.
