Originally from Seattle, Jenyne started her love for circus after taking classes with the Aerialistas during college where she was studying interior design and architecture. In love with her new hobby, she immersed herself in classes every possible moment. She began performing with the group after only a few months. She discovered pole dancing in an exotic club and quickly found one online for her home to begin teaching herself. A few years later her videos were posted on Youtube and she inspired an entire movement. In 2005, at the age of 21, she made the move to Las Vegas to pursue a career in entertainment. She performed in Le Reve in 2006 and started a company, (Mariposa Entertainment Artists) booking talent at special events in 2007. She won the first US Pole Dance Federation championship and earned silver in the world finals in 2009. Jenyne toured to 45 countries instructing master classes, judging competitions, and performing. Then Cirque du Soleil called in 2012. Jenyne created the Dirty Diana act on the first curvy pole apparatus for Michael Jackson ONE where she performed 5 years. She has performed in music videos, movies, commercials, been seen on billboards, magazine covers, and with world famous DJ's such as David Guetta, Tiesto, and Paul Oakenfold where she created the first ever aerial pole. She has never looked back to interiors, but is utilizing her knowledge and experience with design for costumes, sets, make-up, and all things entertainment. She has written and directed 3 full stage production shows with her husband’s company Luja Productions. Jenyne's talent is unparalleled and her passion shines through in all that she does. She is currently choreographing, constantly creating, and enjoys teaching pole/aerial classes in Las Vegas and around the world. “My performing career has been extremely enjoyable and taken my world to new heights, but teaching and creating….meeting face to face with absolutely lovely humans…that’s one of the best things I’ve been lucky enough to experience in this lifetime.” -Jenyne
