Aubrey Martinez

Aubrey began dancing for Joanne at the age of 4. She continued with Joanne until the age of 19, when she left and began her college career. During her years of dancing, Joanne recognized Aubrey’s natural ability for choreography at a young age. Joanne nurtured this gift and soon Aubrey was assisting with classes and choreography at the age of 9. When she was 13 years old, she was choreographing 75% of jazz dances that she was in. At the age of 18, Joanne turned over the competition jazz dances to Aubrey. It was during this year that she would choreograph the dance, “Let My People Go”. This dance would win multiple awards including the coveted ’18 & Up Overall Winner’ at the I Love Dance Competition in Sacramento, CA. This would be the first award of this kind for the studio. Aubrey’s choreography has won numerous awards at many different competitions during the years and now she has returned to continue where she left off. Aubrey has taught jazz, lyrical and tap.

Aubrey was born and raised in the bay area, growing up in Union City where she graduated from Logan in 1994. During her high school years she was actively involved in drama, the school musicals that included ‘A Chorus Line’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Damn Yankees’ and ‘42nd Street’. She also participated in the Dance program at Logan, Club Vogue and Cheerleading for 2 years. She was Captain of her JV squad but decided to quit cheerleading after her Varsity year to pursue a job. After she graduated high school, Aubrey joined the work force full time and eventually decided she wanted more out of life. Aubrey obtained a B.A. degree in Psychology from Sacramento State in May of 2003. She is currently contemplating continuing for her Masters degree. Aubrey enjoys working with people and is happiest when she is fully utilized. Her greatest accomplishment is her daughters, Isabelle and Mariah.
