Jeanna Jones

Jeanna Jones was born and raised in the South End of Boston, Massachusetts. Growing up in such an artistic part of the inner city shaped Jeanna to embrace culture as well as passion for diversity in the dance community. Starting at the age of 6 Jeanna worked with/for the Boston Casting Agency where she was a published model for Totes, Filenes, and Canadian text books. Although dancing was her passion, Jones used the modeling pedastil to promote her unique dance freestyle ability to land photoshoots. At 9 years old seeking interest Jeanna became eligible living in Boston Housing for a grant for her to become classically trained by The Toph Center for The Arts under the instruction of Kimberly Luke. It was instant that Jeanna understood how valuable the formal training would impact her own dance style. Jeanna became part of the schools performance group that led her to perform Modern, Jazz, and tap techniques on the stages of Boston Public Schools. Although Jeanna was educated in Parochial schools it was important for her to be exposed to the art community outside of it. During her time off from school Jeanna was selected as a model and dancer for the Black Hair Expo representing Danny’s His and Hers Hair salon. After finishing highschool Jeanna auditioned for the Phunk Phenomenon Dance complex where she started her professional dance career. Under the managment of Reia Briggs Conners, Jeanna became a dancer for the Boston Celtics Halftime Show and Radio Disney. Jeanna also made appearances on MTV’s Made and Chronicle. A unique quality stood out when Jeannas Hip-Hop Freestyle improvising would mimic her choreography effortlessly. Jones continued to work within the Boston Public School system at the New Boston Pilot School in a dance program for Autisic youth trying to bridge the gap between the arts and with specific learning needs. After years of sucess with Phunk Phenomenon, Jeanna made the decision to become an independent creative artist. Jeanna became part of Jeniette Niehl Hip-Hop repetoire dance ansamble. During this time Jeanna continued to model her vivacious curly hair for South Ends Barbaritos Unisex salon and is currently a model for Camille Abaine Paris after being scouted on Boston’s Fashionable Newbury Street for her Urban yet Chic appeal.
