Hi! My name is Jerron.
Jerron Herman is a Dancer and Administrator primarily for Heidi Latsky Dance where he’s been a proud principal member since 2011. He was most recently profiled in Great Big Story - "Dancing Professionally with Cerebral Palsy". As a model, Jerron has shot a special campaign with Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive and Springible as well as an exploratory shoot for Nike Universal apparel. The New York Times has called him, "...the inexhaustible Mr. Herman."
As a dancer with Cerebral Palsy, I think Evolve 21 will be an interactive space where we can all express prowess and grow our intrinsic strengths in a fun, purposeful way.
Hi! I'm Jessy.
Hi I'm Jessy! I'm an actor, performance artist, and proud disability activist. As a performer, fitness has become a large part of my life. My body is my instrument for acting, so it has to be in tip-top shape. I began my wellness journey when I studied acting at NYU-Tisch School of the Arts. Having CP, I realized that in order to be able to adapt movement curriculum for abled-bodied actors, I needed to become an expert in my body. I found that my mind-body connection was the most helpful tool to optimize both my strength training and relaxation levels. CP causes my body to hold excess tension, so mindful and relaxing exercise helps me calm my tension and open up. In the fall, I will continue my acting training at Yale School of Drama, where I will take extensive advanced yoga, conditioning, and physical acting classes. I'm doing the Evolve21 challenge to condition my body for the intense physical road ahead!
