I am of Colombian heritage, which plays a big role in who I am as a performer. Hard work, emotionality, and having fun define who I am and flow into all aspects of my company Bellydance By Jennifer Inc.
I began belly dancing in mid 2007. I moved to Orlando, FL to begin college and was looking for a fun way to make friends and stay fit. I had been a musician all my life, and was accustomed to working alongside 45-120 musicians daily. Moving to Orlando where I knew no one was quite the change. I decided to go to a nearby salsa studio to try something new, but frankly, didn’t feel it was the right fit.
As I left the studio there was a small poster about belly dance classes. I decided to go the and try it the next week. That is when I met my first belly dance instructor Jolie of Elements of Dance, who completely changed my life.
As I immersed myself into this dance, I found a higher level of confidence, artistic expression, and happiness I could not describe. The music was rich and exotic and I fell in love.
Taking my love for music and my disciplined approach, I began modifying movements to accommodate my moderate double scoliosis, and in the process, found a method that worked and was still highly visible from afar. Because of this, I have created a style that is strong, dynamic, emotional, and not a copy.
It has been my goal to provide others with the happiness belly dancing has given me and show the artistry and beauty of this ancient dance form.
My motto is “Always a Student.” Although I teach belly dance, I am aware that there is still SO MUCH to learn that it literally will take a lifetime!
“Jennifer was such a pleasure to work with, her attention to detail and surprise show act for my husband and I was amazing. She always answered my phone calls and made me feel so much calmer in the days coming up to our wedding. Planning this wedding from Georgia was an experience but Jennifer was amazing, she knocked our guests socks off and brought the house down just as I had wanted. It was an amazing way to get the dancing going and I will definitely keep your number for the next time I am in Orlando!”
