Biography

A petite, green-eyed beauty with a girl-next-door charm, Jenna Dewan took center stage as performing arts high school student Nora Clark in the surprise summer dance hit, "Step Up" (2006). A Hollywood newcomer with a background in ballet and hip-hop dance, Dewan got her start as a back-up dancer, appearing in numerous music videos for A-list pop stars such as Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake. A natural performer both on the dance floor and in front of the camera, Dewan's talent and charisma quickly put her on the map as a multi-talented up-and-comer, as she made the transition from dance floor to big screen.
