One of the hardest working dancehall dancers on the scene right now is Jason Facey. Hailing from Port Maria St. Mary, Jamaica, Facey has made it his life's purpose to do what he loves while also paying tribute to his culture.
Jason Facey is a dancer, choreographer, producer, actor, photographer, and now a clothing designer.
Facey just wrapped up dancing for Gwen Stefani on her "This Is What the Truth Feels Like" tour. His positive outlook on life touch those around him and shine through in everything he does.
A dancehall dancer at heart, he also went to school for production and photography at Southern Connecticut State University. His production skills are on full display as he writes and produces hilariously entertaining skits on his Instagram page. Most of them pay homage to Jamaica and poke fun at his Jamaican culture.
