Jennifer Benavidez


Jennifer Benavidez loves to dance–it´s been her passion for over 20 years.  Born in the US, her Mexican heritage has given her dancing rico sabor (good flavor). She discovered ballroom dancing in 1992 while studying at the University of Texas at Austin. Jennifer’s hips made her focus more on the latin dances and then she discovered SALSA. Her salsa dancing, performing and teaching took her on lovely travels to LA, NY, Puerto Rico, London, Chicago, Israel, Berlin, Prague, Houston, and Casablanca. Not long after graduation she was recruited to teach in Amsterdam where she co-owned one of the top salsa schools in Holland for over 8 years.

Look for her dancing several movies: The Way She Moves staring Annabeth Gish from The X-Files, and The Life of David Gayle starring Kevin Spacey. She has worked with Director/Choreographer Kenny Ortega (Dirty Dancing, Micheal Jackson’s This is It) and Miranda Garrison (Dirty Dancing, Salsa, Selena) . And don’t miss her dancing in Cuban Fury starring Nick Frost out in theaters July 2013.
Most of all Jennifer loves teaching! She has taught workshops and performed for a diverse range of companies: ABN-AMBRO, National Geographic, ING, Martin Air, KLM,, Unilever, Expatica and Amsterdam Police Department, Lexmark, BBC, BNN, RTL5, The Music Factory TV, just to name a few!  She has also taught/performed at numerous festivals: Move It! London, Amsterdam Gay Pride Canal Parade, UIT Markt, Latin Village, Vondel Park Summer Breeze, Rotterdam Summer Carnival, Roots Festival, ContraBanda, and Dansen Op Het Leidseplein and many many more!
Jennifer qualified with Zumba creator Beto Perez in 2009. Zumba allowed her to combine her knowledge of different dance styles into an exciting, calorie burning class. By focusing on the charity side of Zumba, she has given back to the community by organizing and teaching at several Zumbathons around the UK. She is qualified to teach Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning and ZumbAtomic.
