This is an actress with real skill and talent combined with beauty and fashion sense. She has proven for many aspiring dancers that the art form can be a spring board to many wonderful things.
It was amazing. I started dance when I was five years old and danced pretty much throughout my life. Then at age sixteen, an agent – a dance agent from LA, actually – found me and asked if I went to LA if he could represent me. I said sure. So, right at eighteen I moved to LA and started auditioning. I went to college as well, I went to USC. I was auditioning dance-wise and just started booking work. Booked the Janet Jackson tour and was gone… And that was where my life took me in the beginning. Jenna Dewan
