2012-josie-200Hi! My name is Josie and I am 25 years old and from Lehi, Ut. I have been dancing for roughly 20 years and have enjoyed every single second of it! I am going to school full time at Utah Valley University studying public relations. Before becoming a Jazz Dancer, I was dancing in the production shows on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines where I had the opportunity to do what I love, travel the world, and meet amazing people from all different nations.

I am a lover of nature and love spending my time with it hiking whenever I can. I love spending time with my family, my dog, and of course my amazing boyfriend. The television show I am indulging in right now is The Walking Dead. I know…so ridiculous, but zombies are so entertaining. I could definitely live through a zombie apocalypse after watching that show! My family calls me “bean” or “beaner” because I love bean burritos and that’s almost all I ate when I was young. I love watching National Geographic documentaries of all kinds (but nature ones are my favorite). A little fantasy of mine that I’ve had for a long time is to be Kelly Ripa’s co-host on her show Live with Kelly and Michael. I love doing the “Insanity” workouts even though sometimes it’s difficult to talk myself into it. I also think that they should make a shoe size that is 7 3/4 because I swear I am right in between a 7 1/2 and 8.

I love being a member of the Jazz Dancers and hope you all enjoy what we do!
