Dance Teacher - Miss Wanda has presented numerous teachers for their Cecchetti certifications and TATD certifications along with Gilbert certifications. Many area teachers started under Wanda’s training as young adults going on to open their own schools or teach elsewhere.
Some dancers went on to be Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Judy London and Jenny Wright.
Jenny Renay started dancing at Arabesque Dance Studio at the age of two, where she trained in ballet, pointe, tap, and jazz for 12 years. Arabesque not only taught her the core and foundation of her training, but inspired her to pursue a career in dance. Jenny Renay is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. During her time with the DCC show group, she had the privilege of touring all over the world with the USO performing for the troupes. After Dallas, she then continued her dance training at Oklahoma City University where she received her Bachelors degree in Dance Performance. Las Vegas was the next step for Jenny Renay. She danced in shows such as Les Folies Bergere, American Superstars, Xtreme Magic, and as a featured performer in Jerry Mitchell’s Peepshow. She currently resides in Los Angels where she is working in film and dance entertainment with a possible upcoming Reality show to add to her credits. ~Thank you to Miss Wanda and Angela for your guidance and providing a place where I could flourish and grow as an artist!
