Lisette Bustamante began her entertainment career straight out of high school, and in the years since she’s worn a number of professional hats, including dancer, choreographer, artistic director, songwriter, music video director and performance coach. She’s danced alongside superstars such as Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson and Usher on stages all over the globe, and has choreographed for Pink, Prince, Britney Spears, Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez. She’s been featured in commercials for Gap, Pepsi, Pringles, iPod and Sprite, and has choreographed for film and television, with credits including supervising choreographer on America’s Best Dance Crew. She shares her knowledge teaching internationally to thousands of dancers every year on various conventions circuits such as Monsters of Hip Hop, Artists Simply Human and Hollywood Connection.
Four years ago, Bustamante and her longtime creative partner, Chonique Sneed established Creating Opportunities, a mentoring program that offers classes, seminars and other programs for young dancers, singers and choreographers to help them find their path to success and enrich their artistic endeavors.
Lisette was recently featured as a mentor to talent of all kinds on AMC’s “SHOWVILLE”, where each week she coached small town talent and worked with them to be the best they can be and help them achieve their lifelong dreams of performing.
With over 15 years experience in the arts, entertainment and music world, her approach is to give people the permission to express themselves, live a life they love and create magic through art.
