About Me

Jeanette has over 20 years of dance and modeling experience spanning from New York, France, Mexico to L.A. She has performed in Super Bowl XXXVII, the 2004 NBA Summer Pro League, Disneyland's Dance the Magic Parade and aboard the Norwegian Cruiseline's Gem. She was contracted to choreograph for the GLEE! Project, a musical production off-Broadway (T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland: The Musical) as well as for an ABA basketball team before working as the choreographer in resorts in Manzanillo, Cancun, Turks and Caicos, and Florida. There, she picked up aerial dance and acrobatics. She returned to New York City in 2009 to advance her skills in circus, dance and modeling before heading back to California to open up her own studio, Aerial Arts Santa Cruz. She produces large musical theatre shows from her entertainment company, Stellaria Productions, as well as cultivates an elite competition and performance team who specialize in aerial dance and pole acrobatics.
