OTIS DONOVAN HERRING is a native of College Park, Georgia, USA, and received his dance training and BFA from Howard University in Washington, D.C. While receiving his degree, he studied pre-requisite sciences for physical therapy-his other passion. Upon graduating, Otis danced for several notable companies in New York between 2007-2013. Otis moved to Auckland, New Zealand to join Black Grace Dance company under the direction of Neil Ieremia. He currently teaches ASA! African fitness, contemporary movement, and choreographs, locally and internationally and is a credited actor. Otis feels fine arts require honest investigation of one’s self and surroundings, in addition to an indispensable desire to contribute and connect with people.
In continuing his personal and artistic journey, he reconnected with his interest in therapeutic healing by studying and completing a diploma in relaxation massage and wellness at Wellpark College. While there he merged his 15 year performance career with allied health through learning hot stone massage, pre and post event sports massage, as well as an introduction to cupping. Additionally, he plans to pursue a level 6 diploma in remedial massage in August 2022.
Otis is excited to be joining the LNMT team as he is seeking a new opportunity that will not only enhance his personal growth and artistic discipline, but will expand his cultural perspective, and allow him to continue sharing his passion.
