What Moves You?
“Transparency. Being real and not forcing anything.”
Hi, my name’s Jamie and I am a NYC-based dancer from Puerto Rico. I moved to the US in 2012 – when I was 19 years old – to pursue my dream as a professional dancer and the opportunity to broaden my horizons by traveling abroad. I attended AMDA (The American Musical & Dramatic Academy), train regularly at STEPS On Broadway, and look for constant ways of expanding by adding skills like aerial dance, underwater performance, singing, instruments, voice acting, stage combat, gymnastics, and other circus skills into my repertoire. I enjoy studying and learning different languages and about different cultures in my spare time, and look into becoming a Cultural/World Dance dancer in the near future. I currently live in Bushwick, Brooklyn with my boyfriend Eric, and look forward to living a nomadic lifestyle which will allow us to pursue our goals while exploring the world.
