Jenny Rocha & Her Painted Ladies
Jenny Rocha & Her Painted Ladies perform vignettes that are a fusion of dance, physical comedy, theater and burlesque. Using a wide range of styles such as modern, hip-hop, jazz and tap, Rocha creates versatile, high-energy dances for a stunning cast of ladies.
“The Painted Ladies” made their mark on the New York cabaret scene in 2006, where they quickly caught the attention of venues and audiences with a riveting collection of pieces. Created, conceived and choreographed by Rocha, the ensemble takes dancing on a cabaret stage to a new level. Sexy, bold, comedic and empowering!
