Dale Jennings

 

Instructor

Born in the same town as Michael Jackson, Dale was a foster child until his parents adopted him just after his fifth birthday. When they split, he stayed with his mom and grew up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the country. As a fourth grader, he received a glowing review for a novel radio show concept which saw him as a young writer/producer thanks to the help of a program director/on air personality at the station.

Dale has been on stage, on the radio, on small and large screens, been interviewed on local and national television interviews, conducted business conferences, and likes to pop in on a good acting or improv session. He is also an accomplished musician.
