Kobie Symone Jarmon, born July 15, 1995, is a native of Nashville, TN and the youngest of 4 children. By the time she was 3 years old, she began to develop a love for music and dance imitating dancers she saw on television and often dancing even when there was no music. Even at this young age she would say “I hear music in my head”. She started taking dance lessons when she was three years old at Malone’s Dance Studio and tried out for the competition team at Cathy’s Dance Studio when she was five. This is where she really begin to develop her showmanship and learned how capture the audience’s attention.
On a shopping trip to a local mall, she was dancing and turning cartwheels, oblivious to the fact that anyone was watching her. She caught the eye of a representative from Kiddin Around Models and Talent Agency of Atlanta, GA , who was on a country-wide search for new talent. She won their talent search for the 3 to 5 year old category and starting booking print jobs in Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA. This also led to her acting in several independent movies, commercials and music videos. At the age of 9, she landed a featured role in the Sony film Second Chance.
She also developed a love of sports playing softball, basketball, volleyball and lacrosse as well as continuing to dance competitively. By her sophomore year in high school, she had to choose between sports and dance because of the commitment and time each activity required. Obviously, she chose dance and finished her competitive dancing career at Spotlite Dance Studio. This lead to being asked to dance twice for the gospel duo Mary Mary, at CeCe Winan’s Always Sisters Forever Brothers Conference and again at the Gospel Music Stellar Awards. She loves all forms of dance, but modern and contemporary are her favorite to perform. However, she has created quite a presence as a fierce Hip Hop dancer.
