Jenny Jeska
North Carolina

Jenny started dances at a young age – when she was about 2 years old and could barely even walk. She started as a technical dancer training in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and acro. Performing and competing before graduation, she found herself choreographing and teaching for her local dance studio, as well as leading her High school dance and colorguard teams. In college, she studied dance at the University of Massachusetts and Boston, and was accepted into the Boston Ballet internship program where she spent a full year training and taking classes almost every day of the week. She auditioned for a position with Six Flags at this time, and was accepted right away. She spent 7 years performing as a dancer, magician’s assistant, and stunt performer traveling across the US for live shows. After retiring from full-time performance duties, she found herself assisting with the grand opening of a local Ballroom Studio to North Carolina, where she currently resides. She taught for multiple years slowly transitioning to the Latin and Brazilian social dance scene. Currently, she owns her own dance studio, Aura, in North Carolina and travels across the country to teach and perform, sharing her passion for dance with as many people as possible.
