Seven Days of Dapper: Shereen Jenkins

A whole new generation is coming up dapper and 16-year-old Shereen Jenkins is here to prove it – OUT and proud with a new Seven Days of Dapper. Here’s Shereen’s stats:

I’m Shereen Jenkins, 16. Dancing is my passion and I’ve been doing it for 4 years, self taught and never had lessons. I hope to find a studio soon to expand my choreography. I refuse to stop growing as a dancer. Getting noticed and becoming big would be a dream come true. I run indoor track in the spring as well. If I could find the right agency, modeling has also always been on my mind. At some point in my life I’d like to move to New York; it’s so full of opportunities.

Shereen’s impressive dance moves
