Jenna Turner has been dancing since she was five years old. At ten, she was selected to perform in the first cast as a party girl and polichinelle in the Pennsylvania Ballet’s productions of George Balanchine’s Nutcracker at the Kennedy Center Opera House. She was offered a full tuition scholarship for the Patel Conservatory/Next Generation Ballet’s 2013 summer intensive and a 50% tuition scholarship for the Houston Ballet’s 2013 summer intensive, which she looks forward to attending. She is currently rehearsing classical and contemporary pieces to take to the Youth America Grand Prix regional competition in Hartford, Connecticut March 22-24, 2013. In addition to learning challenging new classical variations, Jenna loves to adventure with her pet bird and collaborate creatively with fellow CityDancers.
