Tina Jackson was born and raised in Baltimore Md., and began dancing at the age of 3. By age 13, she realized that dance was bigger than herself, and wanted to further her technique and grow as a performer. As a result she applied and was accepted into The Baltimore School for the Arts. After graduating BSA in 2007, she continued her education at the University of Maryland College Park under the creative and performing arts scholarship where she graduated with two degrees: Dance and Public Relations. She moved to NYC in 2011 after being accepted into the Professional Semester Intern Program at Broadway Dance Center where she trained intensely in Hip-hop, Street Jazz, and Musical Theatre.
She has won awards, titles, and scholarships from:
New York City Dance Alliance,
West Coast Dance Explosion,
L.A. Dance Force, and many more.
She has had the opportunity to perform at: The Capezio ACE Awards, Alvin Ailey's "Summer Sizzler", The Kennedy Center, Jackson Lane Theater (London U.K.), Hallenstadion Zurich (Switzerland), The Radio One Music Awards, The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra “Holiday Spectacular”, The Congressional Black Caucus Gala show, and Disney World's" Stars of Tomorrow". She was a SYTYCD (So You Think You Can Dance) Vegas finalist twice, and She was also a recipient of the NAACP's ACTSO Regional Gold Medal Award.
In 2010, she was recognized for her choreography talent, along with seven other artists in the DMV area, at the Choreographer's Showcase for her contemporary piece [D.O.A] Death of a Princess.
In less than a year after moving to NYC she signed with a dance agency as a commercial dancer and performed with: Nicki Minaj, Nigerian songstress Zaina, Jeremy McQueen’s Contemporary Ballet company at Jacob’s Pillow, and became a main dancer behind the upcoming artists O.C.A.D. Music under the direction of Dana Foglia.
After working for 2 years in NYC, Tina chose to believe deeper in her dreams and migrate to Los Angeles. She has had the incredible opportunity to dance with Beyonce in the 2014 V.M.A.’s, become a principal dancer in a national Samsung commercial, and travel internationally with Dana Foglia's company, Dana Foglia Dance. She is very grateful for all the opportunities and awards she has received this far.
