There are two words for any person seriously doubting their ability to live out all of their dreams: Kourtni Mason.
Kourtni is a Professional dancer, author, actress, public speaker, podcaster, and attorney all wrapped up into a humble package that makes it difficult to resist her charm and sweet personality.
On any given scroll through her Instagram feed, you might catch her dancing to her own choreography in her living room or offering encouraging advice to her followers. But regardless of what comes across your screen, you can bet on her charismatic personality and passion for living her best life to shine through.
Although passionate about dance, this former Atlanta Hawks dancer says she always knew she wanted to be a lawyer.
Her original game plan was to practice law while finding opportunities to continue to dance over time. But one night of babysitting a friend’s daughter, opened her eyes to a new way of turning her passion into profit.
“She was just dancing and bouncing everywhere when I said, ‘alright, Dancey Pants,’ and it clicked,” Kourtni says.
Little Miss Dancey Pants
Kourtni started researching children’s books and noticed a need for a book about dance that had a diverse character. Before she knew it, she was publishing “Little Miss Dancey Pants.”
Since that time, Kourtni has also published two new books as a part of the Little Miss Dancey Pants brand.
Kourtni still practices law and shows no signs of slowing down now. She is anticipating the release of a Little Miss Dancey Pants Doll. Kourtni is working nonstop to increase brand awareness and representation for little black dancers around the world.
