Justin Jackson Biography – Justin Jackson Wiki
Justin Jackson is a Canadian professional tap dancer. He is known for his appearance on “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) and “So You Think You Can Dance Canada” ( SYTYCD Canada). He is a nine-time Canadian tap dancing champion.
Jackson got his first paying gig at 10 years old, dancing for a PBS segment that would air during Callou, the cartoon. He went on to train at the Ethel Bruneau dance studio in Montreal and then spent time living in both Toronto and New York, where he continued training and taking classes.
He performed at the Vancouver Winter Olympics opening ceremonies, on The Wendy Williams Show, at the Jazzfest along with Quebec artist Ariane Moffatt, on several TVA and TV5 tv shows and on three seasons of So You Think You Can Dance Canada.
In March 2021, Jackson performed on Quebec media host Julie Snyder’s Noovo network talk show La semaine des 4 Julie.
Jackson told Global News he has been dancing for as long as he can remember. “My mother always told me that she would put headphones on her pregnant belly and would feel my feet go nuts kicking her,” he said.
Jackson honours his heritage in his performance of “tap, but hip-hop and afro-infused”. His mother is from Trinidad and his father is from Jamaica.
“I grew up in a very rhythmic family. Music was always on; I was always dancing.”
The dancer said growing up, Saturdays and Sundays were days where he would help his parents out around the house while they played Marvin Gaye, Etta James and reggae — music that he calls “the good stuff.”
