Jessenia Velazquez

Welcome to Jessenia’s journey… a 30 year-old Puerto Rican firecracker from Boston, a graduate from the University Of Amherst, MA with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications concentrating on Public Relations, and Marketing class of ’06. Jessenia has always had a passion for the entertainment industry, from dancing, choreographing, acting, fashion design, styling, and modeling, to event coordinating. Therefore, she considers herself an artist in every aspect of the word.  She currently resides in Los Angeles, CA; she made the move right after she finished a 4 month North American tour with Cirque Dreams traveling and exploring the world, performing  at different theaters, & arenas around the world. Now she is pursuing her dreams and making them a reality.  She’s been dancing professionally for about 10  yrs. and has been exposed to many different styles and techniques of dance like tap, street jazz, house, salsa, break dancing and hip-hop. She is a hip hop and salsa teacher at various schools in the LA area teaching kids from age 5 and up. She’s worked with many artists as a backup dancer such as Lil Kim, Miguelito, Wisin y Yandel and more. She can be seen in music videos such as Fergie’s hit from The Great Gatsby soundtrack “A Little Party Never Hurt Nobody,”  Beyonce’s “Who Run The World,” and the youngest nominee winner, Miguelito’s “Party non-stop.”  Jessenia has gone on to appear on ABC’s Cougartown as a freestyle dancer, Disney’s show “The Dog with a Blog” as a featured dancer, and Hell’s Kitchen as a flash mob dancer. You can also check her out on one of MTV’s hit television shows “America’s Best Dance Crew Season 5” as one of the six members of the crew Static Noyze 6.  She always says, “You have to work hard to get to where you want to go and see your dreams come alive” and she knows you’ve heard that a million times and now you can hear it a million and one. She doesn’t see success as a journey but more or less as a destination and as you read in the beginning of her biography this is her journey to her destination in succeeding and conquering her dreams.
