Hometown: Little Falls, NJ
The judges were nuts to send this Broadway baby to choreography rather than straight to Vegas. Yet, that didn’t discourage Jess “Jessman” LeProtto one bit. In the image of his idol Gene Kelly, Jess entertained, dazzled, and danced his little pants off, earning himself a spot on this season’s Top 20. He’s been dancing since the age of 3 in his hometown of Little Falls, NJ and is trained in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, and musical theater. Forget triple threat, this kid is a quadruple threat; he can act, sing, dance, and play the piano and drums. Contrary to his enormous onstage personality, Jess admits to be a bit shy when he’s off stage.
