Parris Goebel (Parri$)

Parris Goebel (known professionally as Parri$) has been inspiring the world through dance from a young age. Her dance crew, The Royal Family, were World Hip Hop Dance Champions for three years (2011, 2012, 2013). She has worked with famous artists from Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna to iKon and G-Dragon. 

A dancer, choreographer, singer, director and actor Goebel was named Young New Zealander of the Year in 2014. One of her notable successes was choreographing the video for Justin Bieber’s song "Sorry", which in February 2018 was the 7th-most-viewed video on YouTube – reaching close to 3 billion views and which was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award! 

Parris Goebel inspires girls to be themselves and show the world something new – as she says, “we already have Beyoncé”.

Goebel released her autobiography Young Queen: the Story of a Girl who Conquered the World in 2018.
