Jackie Miranda has always had a passion for dance, having watched many Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals and then emulating what she saw on the screen. Having been raised in a very strict environment where dancing and singing were not allowed, she finally found her niche in 1996. She met her husband Doug through dance and has since teamed up with him and has been on successful teaching tours throughout the United States, as well as numerous trips to Australia, New Zealand, The United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Japan, France, Austria, Spain, and Switzerland. Born in Princeton, New Jersey but raised in Manila, Philippines, Jackie's family moved to California in 1983 where she had lived until Spring of 2008. Now a resident of Sevierville, she is happy to be doing what she has always dreamed of - taking on a theater, creating choreography and starring in the new production of "America's Hit Parade"
