Jenna Almenares

 

imageBorn in Toowoomba, Queensland and from the early age of 6 years Jenna began to dance Ballroom. After winning the Queensland Juvenile A Grade Individual Championships at the age of 8 it then became her desire to enter more competitions to further develop her training in Ballroom.

It was at this time her family moved to the Gold Coast in which she continued competing and winning more Juvenile Titles such as the Queensland Ballroom Championships, National Juvenile Championships and Australian Ballroom Championships in all three styles of Modern, New Vogue and Latin American.

Her family moved back to Toowoomba when she was 12 and she studied the subject of dance in high school along with competing in the Rock Eisteddfod Challenge with her school placing 1st for QLD in 2003.

Moving once again back to the Gold Coast after high school at 17, it was at this time her former dance instructor was teaching Colombian Salsa and asked Jenna to come along to a class. With no formal training in this popular style of Street Latin dance, she was still quick to pick up the moves and in no time was teaching the class.

Over the next couple of years her level of Salsa continued to advance by dancing socially on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane which included her picking up more popular Street Latin dance styles including On1/LA & On2/NY Salsa, Bachata, Street Cha Cha & Zouk. Jenna however wanted to focus on a Street Latin dance that suited her style along with technical background so chose On2/NY Salsa.

jenna3Jenna has now been dancing professional Salsa since mid 2008 teaming up with Roberto Paul and together winning the Queensland State Salsa Titles Professional On2 Division in 2008, 2009 and 2010. From the State Titles she has then gone on to place 3rd in the Australian Salsa Classic Professional On2 Division in 2008 & 1st in the Australian Salsa Classic Professional On2 Division for 2010. Her partnership with Roberto Paul has also given her the opportunity in teaching beginner through to advanced students in the foundations of On2/NY Salsa in Brisbane.

Jenna has worked with some amazing National & International artists such as back-up dancer for singer Tiffany Wood at her Gold Coast appearance in 2005, Latin Dance Artists such as Claudio Gomes at the Brisbane Brazilian and Brisbane Latin Dance Congress in 2008 and Mafie Zouker on his Australian Tour in 2009. Continuing and touring Prague, Russia and Sweden in 2011 with Zouk Master Carlos Da Silva performing and teaching Zouk and Ladies Salsa Styling.

In February 2010 she formed an all female salsa group called Risqué and choreographed a routine that won them the Teams Division of the Australian Salsa Solo Competition held in Sydney in August 2010. Their performance at this event received rave reviews and resulted in invitations to perform at various National & International Salsa events.
