Jenna Johnson is an American ballroom dancer who has made a name for herself primarily through her appearance as a contestant in the American television dance competition show So You Think You Can Dance, which is broadcast by Fox in the United States. Jenna is particularly talented when it comes to dancing, which is probably due to the fact that she started dancing at the age of three.
Apart from the workload on So You Think You Can Dance, which made her quite popular, she is a professional dancer in the troupe Dancing with the Stars. Jenna took professional classes in ballroom, ballet, jazz, contemporary dance, and hip-hop to hone her skills on the dance floor, and her efforts have certainly paid off, as the results of her training are quite obvious.
Jenna Johnson Bio
Jenna Johnson was born on April 12, 1994, in Provo, Utah, the daughter of parents Curt Johnson and Tamara Jean. There she grew up with her family of five siblings. She attended Timpview High School and graduated in 2012.
At such a young age, Jenna is at the top of her game and does everything she can to keep it going. As a dancer, Jenna has proven that it takes a lot more than just wearing her dancing shoes and moving to the beat. To keep in shape, she has a training routine that she follows and sticks to stay flexible and make sure her skills don’t rust.
To further prove that she really takes her routine seriously, Jenna has given a hint about the five (5) things she does to keep in shape. Her absolutely gorgeous abs are sure proof of this. According to her: To stay in shape, maintain your routine, know your weaknesses, compliment you, be aware of what you eat, and know and understand your body. If you follow these 5 rules, your abs have a chance to look as great as Jenna’s.
She participated in the 10th season of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ after auditioning in Memphis Tennessee and making it. Previously, two of her siblings had auditioned for the show and were fired from Green Mile. At the show, she was with Tucker Knox, a contemporary dancer. The couple put on a pretty good show and made it to 8th place.
As for romantic relationships and friends, Jenna has had a hell of a time. Her current boyfriend is Valentine Chmerkovskiy, a Ukrainian-American professional dancer. Val was born on March 24, 1986, as Valentin Aleksandrovich “Val” Chmerkovskiy in Odessa. He has an older brother, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who is also a professional dancer with Dancing With The Stars.
Val is best known for his performances in the US version of Dancing with the Stars, which he performed in… won twice. The first time he performed in the second season of the show in February 2006 as a student of his older brother, then again in the fourth season, where he participated in a dance-off against his brother. From the 10th to the 25th season, Val also performed in all other seasons and won first place twice in seasons 20 and 23.
Before he got serious about Jenna, Val had dated the famous Amber Rose for 5 months from 2016 to early 2017. His relationship with Jenna was volatile at that time and had no real strings attached.
Jenna Johnson’s Relationship With Val Chmerkovskiy
The love vibrations between Jenna and Val seem to become stronger and stronger as the days go by. The two met for the first time on the show and began an affair that started and ended again, which was really quiet until the summer of 2017 when they finally came out and took the bold step of making the ultimate PDA whenever they could, as well as confessing their love to anyone who would listen.
In August 2017, People Magazine described Val as a man in love, weeks after he took a trip to Europe with Jenna. In an interview, he admitted that he was in love. Then he published a photo of himself kissing Jenna’s head with the caption: “But the real prize is .❤️👑”.
