Jadon is 13 years old and has trained at the Northwest School of Dance in Bremerton, WA since the age of 6. Jadon comes from a family of artists – his mother danced professional ballet in Germany and now teaches him, and he has cousins who have been featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and perform on Broadway and in Cirque du Soleil.
Jadon has had the privilege of being invited as a guest dancer to perform the role of the Nutcracker Prince in the Dance Theatre International’s Nutcracker production in San Jose, CA two years in a row. He was also fortunate enough to attend several summer intensive programs including Bolshoi Ballet Academy, ABT in NYC, Colorado Ballet and Royal Ballet School in London, most on scholarship.
Jadon has trained in several dance styles including Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Character and some Irish. His favorite style is Ballet and this year he has shifted his focus to Ballet – he hopes one day to be a member of a professional ballet company.
