"Kikora Franklin is one of the most prolific and versatile choreographers I've had the pleasure of working with. Her knowledge of dance pedagogy is unsurpassed. She is one of the founding instructors of the Mojah technique that is on its way to being known worldwide. Kikora is a master instructor, superb performer and outstanding arts advocate."
