Meet Jennifer Roush
Rio’s “Show in the Sky”
Born in Germany (“My father was in the Air Force, so that’s all I know”) and grew up in Oklahoma. … Started dancing at the age of 5 after her father noticed that she’d start to move whenever music came on. … Holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in dance education and an Arizona cosmetology license. … Came to Las Vegas eight years ago, hoping to land a part in a show and save enough to open her own dance studio/hair salon. … Landed a role in hypnotist Marshall Sylver’s stage show (but says that she, herself, never could be hypnotized). … Other Las Vegas credits include Hawaiian Tropic Zone and the show “Ignite.” … Weirdest “Show in the Sky” float-riding experiences include being flashed by audience members (both male and female). … Hopes to one day study for a Nevada cosmetology license and open a business here.
why she loves to dance
“The thing I like most about dance, still, to this day, is the satisfaction it brings to the audience and people who are watching. Not only do I get to express myself — it’s like therapy for me — but I feel like I can reach out and touch people and move people. So, it’s like a win-win situation.”
