Hometown: Miami, FL
Janette Manrara brought some serious Miami heat all the way to the Top 8 of Season 5. When she was 12, she made her dancing start in musical theater. Seven years later, she transitioned into more formal training in ballroom, salsa, jazz, ballet, pointe, and hip hop. She attended Florida International University with a focus on finance. Since her SYTYCD days, Janette has appeared on Broadway in the show Burn the Floor, performed on the hit television show Glee, toured with Glee Live, and danced in the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. We’re looking forward to watching this Miami Hot Tamale burn up this season’s dance floor.
