Jenn Tran is from City Heights, a beautiful diverse neighborhood located in San Diego. Jenn joined transcenDANCE as a teen company dancer in 2013 and has advanced to be a Teaching Artist Apprentice as of 2020. She had never taken dance classes before joining transcenDANCE and she has never stopped since the first class. As a free spirit, she continues to develop her dance skills through training in Hip-Hop, Modern/Contemporary and West African. Jenn loves to blend her dance styles as a teacher. She hopes to continue to work with youth, adults, and anyone who has a calling to make the world a more expressive, free world through Art. While attending San Diego City College, Jenn presented her choreography in the Dance Showcase in a piece titled, Unleashed: A Series of Stories. Jenn has continued her training through Culture Shock’s 2019 Fall Scholarship program. In 2018 and 2019, Jenn was a featured performer for two different performance residencies at the International San Diego Airport and the NTC Arts District at Liberty Station.
