Jenn Stafford is a passionate and charming dancer and performance artist from Calgary, Canada. Her mother always thought she was having a soccer player due to all the kicking in her tummy… She soon learned that those were grand battements! Since leaving her hometown at the tender age of 17, Jenn has nested, trained and worked in Vancouver, Toronto, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. She has always enjoyed working in as many different capacities of performance as possible, rewarding her with more knowledge and a broadening perspective as an artist.
Jenn has been grateful to achieve a few of her biggest dreams through her work with Cirque du Soleil in “The Beatles’ LOVE” and more recently while filming AVATAR 2 and 3 under the direction of James Cameron. From performing for a theatre of thousands to embodying movement for a character with hundreds of cameras catching each minuscule action and facial gesture, Jenn continues to discover the range of her performance and depth as an artist.
Jenn has also been honored to have had opportunities to work with, Katy Perry, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Life is Beautiful Music Festival, The Grammy Awards, Sprint NASCAR Awards, 45degrees in “Scalada VISION,” directed by Mukhtar O.S. Mukhtar, PEARL a show directed by Daniel Ezralow and with KPOP stars, Tiffany Young, Jessica Jung, and WINNER.
She also, recently finished filming a new family musical movie, “A Week Away” to debut on Netflix.
Jenn has gained a spectrum of experience and knowledge thus far in her career. She loves to share as much as she can with other young performers and artists, valuing youth education both in dance and empowerment.
