After watching some “big kids” doing back handsprings on their front lawn in Detroit ,
So in Jr. High, he joined a club where he learned the basics of men’s gymnastics.
This took him to High School, where he made the men’s team at North Farmington
High. He still holds the school record there for Floor Exercise, Parallel Bars, and All
Around. (Should we mention at this point, that men’s gymnastics was phased out
after his Senior year, so no one was ever able to challenge his record?!) His work
ethic and solid gymnastics skills landed him on the team at Western Michigan
University , where he competed for 4 years.

As soon as he stopped competing, Jeff began coaching. He started as an Assistant
Coach at North Farmington High School in 1987, and then Head Coach of the Tri-
Farmington Gymnastics team in 1994. He continues today as the Head Coach of the
Farmington Unified Gymnastics team. He has coached 3 State Champion teams, 1
State Runner-Up team, and many more teams that landed in the top 5 in the State. He
was the MHSGJCA Coach of the year in 1999 and the Observerland Coach of the Year
for the past 3 years.

He is well respected by gymnasts, parents, fellow coaches, and judges – for good
reason! He doesn’t start and stop coaching with the High School season. While
coaching the High School girls, he also developed an off-season program that is
widely respected and still going strong. High School girls from many different school
districts sign up to work with him. He also helped to establish the annual Farmington
Invitational Meet, where he makes it a point to award as many girls as possible for
their accomplishments.

Mr. Jeff's team has won back-to-back state titles!

highschool, dancing for a team started by he, and his bestfriend Brandon Burton also
known as "Skilz" under the schools newspaper committee called "Unpredictably
Krazy". Post highschool, Uri auditioned for his first Agency which was called "Toni's
Dance Company" Which was ran By Toni Webb Washington. Uri danced with TDC's

after the ABDC season 2 audition,  leaving him to his own independent pursuits. While

Uri also had the opportunity to choreograph over 11 sets for "Motor City Movement: A
Collaboration of Choreographers", as well as a set for the Detroit Thanksgiving Day
Parade.  His signature style is a unique blend of Contemporary hip-hop and jazz-funk
he likes to call “PerFUNKtory” which stands for “Perfect Funk Factory”.  Being that his

following and soon began teaching.  He has taught at studios including Michael &

Outside of studio work and commercial work, Uri’s true love comes from Dance
Crews.  His most notable piece of work is his dance company, “Melodic Nocturne
Dance Tribe”.  Since creating this group, Uri’s work took on a new form spreading to
all areas of the Michigan dance scene. Melodic has done countless shows in lines of
humanitarian work such as: benefit performances catering to Breast Cancer
awareness,  Lupus Awareness,  Domestic Violence Prevention, And Fights Against
Hunger. Melodic Nocturne are also the reigning champions of Blaze The Stage 2010,
as well as the 2014 Savage Dance Tournament Champions. Melodic Nocturne's
influence has also reached into Chicago as well by making guest appearances in The
Puzzle Leagues "Masterpiece Dance Competition", as well as competing in 2014
World of Dance Chicago.

Current day, Uri still proudly stands as choreographer and artistic director of Melodic
Nocturne, while also wearing the hat of Co-Director and central board member of Next
