From a young age Denisse Ortiz always had a passion for dancing and singing. She has over 20 years of dance experience including Jazz, Ballet, Tap, Pointe, Hip-Hop, and Broadway Dance styles.
After being recruited by a talent manager Denisse began singing at venues all over Florida. One of her most memorable experiences was singing at the well-known Nickelodeon Studios. Denisse’s biggest singing performance to date was being the opening act for the Grammy Award winning Puerto Rican salsa singer Jerry Rivera. After this performance, Denisse was asked to participate in the Miss Puerto Rico Bayamon Pageant, and won!
Ready for new opportunities this young star decided to move to Atlanta, GA. After spending one year as a member of the Atlanta Falcons Cheer team, and show troupe participant (a specially selected group of cheerleaders who travel overseas to perform for our troops) she decided she was ready for a change and was accepted as a member of the Atlanta Hawks Dance team.
Denisse spent 7 seasons with the Hawks and took on the responsibility of team captain. As a leader on the team she has been given the opportunity to perform in Mexico, various cities in China, and Taiwan. Her images have graced the covers of Atlanta based magazines and calendars.
Denisse is truly a woman of talent and drive. She plans on continuing to achieve her life’s goals while having fun in the process.
