Jennifer Locke was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and has always had a passion for the performing arts! She began taking ballet as a toddler but didn’t really begin taking dance training seriously until she started attending Debbie Allen Dance Academy, studying under the direction of Debbie Allen. She trained in various styles at D.A.D.A and was featured in many of Ms. Allen’s original stage productions such as Pearl, Pepito’s Story, and starred in Dreams. After high school, Jennifer went on to attend the Ailey/Fordham B.F.A program in New York City, graduated in 2009 and immediately began working as a professional dancer. She has performed in the European Tour of West Side Story, The Wiz (Encores!), In the Heights on Broadway, and many workshops, in addition to performing in shows with artists such as Paul McCartney and Mariah Carey. She has also done work on different Television shows such as That’s So Raven, various made for TV movies including Inland Empire, Elixir (ABC family’s TV musical coming out Spring 2013) and has been featured in various episodes of the new show “Smash.” Jennifer wishes to continue performing for as long as she can and hopefully be a source of inspiration to many to dream and live out loud!
