Creator / CEO
Jennifer began dancing at 3, singing at 6, marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade at 15 and performed her own cabaret in NYC at 21. Stand Out Talent is a culmination of a lifetime training in performance, education, business, and child development (ECE Units attained) and years of building lasting relationships with some of the best names in the industry - all steps toward her ultimate goal of offering a theatre for talent of all ages.
Over time, Jennifer recognized the evolution of the Arts from stage to media; in Los Angeles, Jennifer co-produced the LA extension of "Making it on Broadway" and found relationships with industry talent, casting directors and managers enlightening: the new "triple threat" is no longer singing/dancing/acting, but acting/singing/camera technique. With the help of husband Jason Bortz, an accomplished actor/filmmaker, Jennifer integrated classes designed to provide performers with a process effective for both stage and screen. Soon she found her students "standing out" from their peers--booking work, signing with agents and managers, and landing scholarships to prestigious schools.
For Jennifer, Stand Out Talent is the opportunity she's always dreamt of: to cultivate performers' talents in an environment fully suited for their individual growth, and to provide a Venue for accomplished performers to feel excited about sharing their work with audiences. She's thrilled at the opportunity to partner with the City of Roseville in revitalizing the Arts for her home community through the Tower Theatre venue, offering classes, concerts, film premieres and more.
The possibilities and potential, she believes, are unlimited.
