Jenna discovered her love for performing at a very young age. From just weeks old she spent nearly every waking hour in her mother's gymnastics club surrounded by talented and dedicated athletes, and she loved every minute of it.
She later went on to discover a passion for both figure skating, and dance and dedicated many years to both. However after being offered a scholarship to the Urdang Academy of Classical Ballet and Performing Arts, at just 12 years old, she realised that she would have to make the decision to focus on one or the other. Though it was a tough decision at such a young age, Jenna accepted the scholarship to ballet school.
During her 4 years of full time training at The Urdang, Jenna won 'Classical Ballerina of The Year Award' three years running, and many solo and principal roles in Jazz, Contemporary, and Musical Theatre pieces.
Jenna has a love for all forms of performance, and has been lucky enough to enjoy a variety of work since graduating, from music videos such as Placebo's 'Twenty Years', to live performances working as both a dancer and acrobat. She has performed on the prestigious stages of The Royal Opera House - Covent Garden, The London Coliseum, and Sadler's Well Peacock Theatre in London's West End, to name a few. Most recently she could be found performing in Australia and New Zealand, in the DreamWorks World Arena Tour of the hit movie, "How To Train Your Dragon". Jenna has graced the cover of Runner's magazine, as well as modelling for Vogue, Nike, Pineapple, and Bloch Dancer Wear, and in 2010 she became the face of The Focal Space. She can also been seen in various television commercials Worldwide, alongside the likes of Holly Willoughby, Fearne Cotton, Richard Hammond and Denise Van Outen.
Jenna feels very fortunate to have had the opportunity to return to figure skating, an area of performance that she loved so much and is now able to work in as both an artist, and a choreographer and coach. In 2005, Jenna choreographed a commercial for the Figure Skating World Championships on ESPN. She went on to work with the Paradise On Ice company in Montpellier, France, as a guest principal and has skated for audiences around the world at the opening of many outdoor winter ice rinks. In 2009 Jenna spent a year coaching some of Australia's top figure skaters both on and off the ice, to improve their strength, flexibility and core stability, as well as their artistry and choreography.
Jenna continues to challenge herself to learning and perfecting new skills everyday, and is currently working on new circus skills such as the flying trapeze, aerial hoop, silks, cord de lisse and hand balancing.
Of course none of this would be possible without the continual love and support of family and friends, and for this she is extremely thankful.
