Growing up as the child of an entertainer Himerria Wortham never considered stepping into her mother's footsteps of living and loving stage life. Instead, she dreamed of reaching for the stars with science, particularly biology. While playfully enjoying her early discovery of the microscope, her mother kept her enrolled in violin, piano, gymnastics, figure ice-skating, and art with the hopes that she would one day share her passion for the performing arts.
Born to the Jazz singer Rozaa Wortham and the pharmacist Nacer Khaled Kodjah in Berlin Germany, Himerria grew up in a multi-lingual environment, learning English, German and French from her surroundings. Himerria also had the early opportunity of traveling and living in both Europe and the US, resulting in her never-ending appetite for exploring the world.
Once she recognized her love for dance she joined two German national dance agencies, Aykon and XXL Entertainment, and successfully tried her luck competing on a national level. After moving to Detroit, she began performing in the musical Blues Rhythm, the Greektown Casino revue Velocity, and dancing alongside Detroit living legend, Aretha Franklin. Not limiting herself to Hip Hop dance she joined the Detroit based African dance company Ngoma Za Amen Ra. At Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan she soon realized that majoring in Kinesiology and minoring in Dance would be a great fit for her interests. Her passion in dance has developed from the fun experiments with BBoying and Jazz to a desire to make dance, specifically Hip Hop, one of her career goals.
Before moving away from Detroit she appeared on the show MTV's Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew (season 2) with the Detroit based crew ASIID, and toured nationally with ABDC Live.
Since her move to Los Angeles, Himerria has had the opportunity to perform with artist such as Shakira, Jody Watley, Christina Milian, Willow Smith and work under the well-known choreographers, Tabitha and Napoleon, Rosero McCoy, Hi Hat and Tina Landon, to name a few. Currently, Himerria is following her dreams of becoming a well-rounded entertainer by continuing her training in disciplines such as Waacking, House dance, Tumbling, Stunt Fighting and acting, as well as performing regularly with the Mischief Makers, Kumari Suraj, The Waackers, and at Disneyland.
