Dionne Figgins constantly shows us that she is indeed a force to be reckoned with. From her stand out work on Motown the Musical as “Dance Captain” and understudy for the character of Diana Ross to her groovadelic incarnation on Trip of Love, as “Jennifer”, a young woman of color living during the height of the civil rights movement, fighting to integrate the TV variety show world in Hollywood, CA. Figgins is FIERCE. Currently, Figgins has added a new role off Broadway on the STARZ original series ‘Flesh and Bone‘.
‘Flesh and Bone’ takes viewers on a tour of the seedy underbelly of the fiercely competitive world of ballet. Figgins bares almost all as a stripper with sage advice. Her characters name is the “Yasmine” and Figgins show us a completely different side of her talent as she bares all for that almighty dollar dollar bill ya’ll.

Figgins is working hard to continuously establish herself as triple threat with notable accomplishments in dance, singing and acting. And while she stays busy on stage and in front of camera, she also makes time to remember the less fortunate through her work as co-founder of Broadway Serves, a service organization comprised of members of the Broadway community who are looking to “be the change we want to see in the world.” Figgins is a powerhouse who cares and we just can’t get enough!
