FDT Company artist
Jordan Raybon, a Tampa native, has been dancing for over 25 years. She received her classical training at Americas Ballet School under the direction of Paula Nunez as well as the Orlando Ballet School at the Patel Conservatory under the direction of Peter Stark. She has also trained extensively in Jazz and Contemporary dance, winning countless regional and national competitions and convention scholarships. Upon completing the YAGP regionals in 2007, Jordan placed in the prestigious top twelve. During her time here with Florida Dance Theatre, Jordan has had the honor of performing great classical and contemporary roles such as the lead soloist in Ferdinand DeJesus' original work "Noir", The Arabian pas de deux in The Nutcracker, Queen of the Vampires Dracula, Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Wonka in FDT's adaptation of The Golden Ticket and The Genie in Aladdin. Another great highlight of Jordan's time here with Florida Dance Theatre was being chosen to go to NYC to perform at The APAP conference in Lincoln Center. When she is not dancing or teaching, Jordan is spending time with her sassy little girl, Camille. Jordan is very excited for this season at Florida Dance Theatre not only performing with the company but teaching at the Academy as well.
