Jenna Dewan is an American singer and dancer. She began her musical career as a backup singer for Janet Jackson, then worked with other artists such as P!nk, Missy Elliott, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera during the 1990s. She continues to perform well into her senior years, and has also opened for top music stars such as Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. Dewan has also had a number of roles on television, including an enduring recurring role on the television series ‘Heroes’. Other notable works include the films ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ and ‘The Perfect Score’.
The story of Jenna Dewan begins at the University of Southern California, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in molecular biology. During this time, she also became a member of the sorority Delta. While in college, she also developed a passion for dance. This continued on until the graduation of the same group when it became clear that a major in dance was required for all of them. This led to a decision by the administration to create an internship for which she would apply, which lead to her eventual participation on the reality competition TV show ‘Rise and Fall’.
What is interesting about the career of Jenna Dewan, is that she began as an actress in what was considered a man’s realm. As such, the portrayal of men’s characters in media such as films and television are not discussed as much, despite the fact that it is common for every woman to be involved in these endeavors. There are even rare instances where the character of a woman is presented as being feminine, and not merely as a sportive female. In the case of Jenna Dewan, however, she willingly played the character of a strong, athletic woman who also happened to be a highly skilled dancer. This combination of athletic prowess and grace meant that she was immediately cast as the series’ lead dancer in the first episode, which also happens to be its longest-running episode.
The world of professional dancing can often be an intimidating place to enter. Many people who have never dabbled in this area of entertainment have an extremely hard time trying to get up to speed with the routines that are common among dancers. The first few times that someone thinks about entering this field, they tend to focus on what it will entail, which is exactly what the organizers of the state of Connecticut realized when they were selecting their finest contestant to compete. In the end, no one could blame them for picking Jenna Dewan because not only was she a perfectly talented performer but also someone who was going to be able to get up to speed very quickly. It was only natural that she should be chosen for this prestigious position.
A large number of similarities exist between the career of Dewan and that of another talented young actress who is also currently studying dancing as a profession. Like Dewan, Anne Hathaway is also talented as a singer and dancer, but at the same time, she has found herself spending a large amount of time playing both characters. The thing that sets these two apart is the fact that they are also both incredibly versatile. Not only does Anne Hathaway have a great voice to add to her acting abilities, but she also can do a great job of switching between her various characters with flying colors. This is not something that any young actress can always guarantee.
The world of dancing is certainly an exciting one, both for fans of the actual show, as well as fans of the performers. It seems like the opportunities that are available through television and films in particular are very rare for an aspiring performer. In many ways, Jenna Dewan fits into that mold. The way that she was cast makes her the perfect candidate for such a role, and it seems that there is no end in sight for how good she will get at it. So, if you have not seen what an amazing actress Jenna Dewan can be, then it is definitely time that you did.
