After studying Ballet and Gymnastics, Jenna changed her field to Contemporary dance. During her professional career, she never stopped expanding her capacities to move and perform. She learnt to master Acrobatics, Aerials, Partnering, Circus techniques and Martial arts. Recently she is inspired in Urban and Street dance especially in House dance.
Everyone who knows Jenna believes that her abilities to master any movement discipline is limitless in other words she can learn anything in short time. Furthermore she performs very different skills always with the appropriate qualities, meaning she can adapt to many different styles easily.
- What does she do to become sensitive to new and very different forms of movement?
We can see her in a piece called DOPE 'I just wish to help you' by Collective Dope, in which she falls to the floor hundred times and stands hundred times without a scratch. Those are neither "dance falls" nor spectacular "stunt falls", but real uncontrolled drops even from high jumps. Watching it makes us feel she is totally out of control and she breaks every single bone in her body, yet she moves on and on without the sign of any injury.
- How does she develop reflexes and prepares her body to save herself even in such realistic movement situations?
Whenever Jenna tries something new and occasionally fails her performance become even better and better. Failure seems enhancing her motivation instead of degrading it. She gains more and more energy to try again and again.
- How does she transform practice after a failure to stay motivated, positive and full of creative energy?
Jenna is a great improviser and even in the first phases of achieving a new skill she already apply it spontaneously and organically in improvisation. For example when she started to learn House dancing even after the first lessons she started to use complex rythmical patterns in improvisation with good quality.
- How does she think and practice to stay spontaneous, creative and extremely efficient in the same time?
You can learn a lot from Jenna about instinctive approach to movement by practicing with her and listening her answers.
