Miss Prissy

Discovered in greater Los Angeles, Marquisa "Miss Prissy" Gardner is one of the most well-rounded entertainers the south side of Hollywood has ever seen. She is trained in all areas of dance, from ballet to hip-hop, and has vocal abilities that have been compared to the likes of Brandy, Keyshia Cole, Mariah Carey, and eight-time Grammy winner Lauryn Hill. Not only does she have the chops to kick through pop and hip-hop’s doors, she also has the edgy twist that is sure to get any music head out of their seat. Though tours with Snoop Dogg, the Game, and Madonna didn’t come until after her appearance in the 2005 film Rize, which chronicles the lives and competitions of some of South Central Los Angeles’s top krump dancers, Miss Prissy (called “the Queen of Krump” in the film) was already a well-respected dancer and teacher in her own neighborhood before Rize was ever shown. Classically trained, Miss Prissy started lessons at the age of four, learning everything from ballet to jazz to tap.
