Jessie Shelton Biography

Jessie is a multidisciplinary artist and actor based in NYC. She was born to musician parents in Minneapolis, MN and began studying violin just before her 4th birthday. As she continued her classical studies, she discovered the world of dance and trained for many years at the Minnesota Dance Theatre and School, under the direction of Lise Houlton, until her discovery of theatre in 8th grade. From there, the rest is history. She spent a few years training and performing at The Children's Theatre Company before her acceptance to Carnegie Mellon University, where she received her BFA in Acting/Musical Theatre. Following her senior year, she moved to NYC and has been keeping busy ever since.
