About the Instructor:
Jade Perry began performing at age seven in a summer theater production of The Wizard of Oz. He continued in the arts throughout his teens, acting in many of the Crawfordsville High School Drama Club productions (at the time, directed by TFAD’s Mr. Jim & Miss Paula), and taking dance classes with Miss Madeline and Miss Marigrace. In college, Jade was the first male to make the University of Southern Indiana Dance Team. He helped the ensemble place seventh at collegiate nationals.
Jade has auditioned for the Walt Disney Company three times, first landing roles as a parade dancer and “fur” character at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.
In 2015, Jade decided to pursue a career as a professional model and actor. In the past, he has been cast in a featured extra role on CBS’s “The Inspectors”, and has appeared in box office movies “Alvin and The Chipmunks – The Road Chip” and “War Dogs” with Jonah Hill, Miles Teller and Bradley Cooper. Additionally, he has worked professionally as a dance instructor, dinner theater performer and choreographer.
Jade will begin his next role as a main face character at Disneyland Paris in Paris, France in mid-February 2017.
