Janet Marie began studying modern dance at age five in her hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey. Her very first recital at age five was a solo performance to Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of Animals (“Le Carnaval des Animaux”) doing donkey kicks! We’re not sure why that’s totally relevant but we do find it quite funny, actually.
OK, let’s get serious. Janet Marie is an Honors graduate of the Theatre Arts/ Dance Department of Smith College. While there, she had the opportunity to take master classes with some of the top modern dance companies in America. Her core dance training includes improvisational dance, modern dance, classical ballet including pointe as well as jazz and some tap. Additionally, Marie has studied yoga, Tan Soo Do Karate, boxing and Tai Chi. She has taught both dance and group fitness professionally and, over the years, spent way too much time at the gym!
A longtime veteran of the entertainment industry who also holds a Masters in Business Administration degree, Marie has extensive experience both behind and in front of the camera. Her behind-the-camera experience includes five years working at ABC-TV on major network shows. Her on/camera and radio experience includes voice/overs on over 70 TV commercials, reality TV shows, radio show hosting, and feature parts on soaps. This experience allows her to share her considerable Hollywood savvy toward helping you look and feel great.
