Bio

Some aspiring artists quit after one rejection. Jashaun “Jayy” Gamble isn’t one of them.

At 16 years old, Jayy started Dance Lessons at The Debbie Allen Dance Academy. He was offered a scholarship to take part in the Hip Hop Intensive where he performed for mainstream choreographers Dave Scott, LaurieAnn Gibson, and Debbie Allen.

Over the next several months, Jayy auditioned for several Talent Agencies and was rejected from all of them. Jayy continued taking dance lessons at The Debbie Allen Dance Academy and across Hollywood.

The training paid off. At the next audition, held early in his senior year of High School, Jayy got signed. “To this day, I still continue to train; I'm in class almost every day picking up new steps.”

Jayy kept this a secret from his parents, who to this day show little support for his dance career and would rather see him pursuing engineering as a career path. Jayy studies as an Electrical Engineer and Dancer at California State University, Northridge.

His long-term goal is to put together a small touring group and perform in foreign countries. In the meantime, he’s happy at home.

“Los Angeles is a great place for dance,” he said. “I want to stay in L.A. and keep building myself up as a dancer.”
