Jasmine graduated from UCLA with a degree in History and choreography became her way of translating all she had learned, a map of juxtaposition and contradiction, exploring places wrought in authority and fleeting moments of insecurity. Her other work has been seen at Diavalo Dance Space and for the monthly psycho dance show Fingered. She has danced with companies such as Hysterica and Collage Dance Theater and with musical talent including We Are the World, Hazm, and Hecuba in various venues around Los Angeles such as the Hammer Museum, the Ford Amphitheater, The Orpheum, Pioneer Town and a laundromat on Sunset and Vine. She has choreographed music videos under the direction of Jennifer Tzar for Bob Wayne and danced in videos for Beck, Ingrid Michaelson, and You Will Know Us By the Trail of the Dead. Today she continues creating movement, picking up pieces of the city for inspiration while collaborating and working with choreographers such as Ryan Heffington and Mecca Andrews. Her classes are a quirky combination of technique, musicality, placement, balance, playing with gravity and creating images through motion.
