JACOB GUZMAN (Villager, Assistant Dance Captain)


Jacob grew up dancing at The Gold School in Brockton, MA, under the direction of Rennie Gold.  He trained rigorously in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and other various styles. While at the Gold School, Jacob was a member of Project Moves Dance Company, a program aimed at ending bullying.  At 17, Jacob and his twin brother, David, moved to New York City to join the amazing Broadway Company of Newsies. AfterNewsies, they were fortunate to work together again in Neverland as the Twin Lost Boys in NBC’s “Peter Pan Live.”  Jacob has had the opportunity to perform on “Dancing with the Stars” twice, the first time with his home studio, The Gold School, and the second with the Broadway Company ofNewsies. Jacob has also had the honor of dancing at the Fire Island Dance Festival with both The Gold School, and most recently performing the work of Al Blackstone. He is now very exciting to be working with Bartlett Sher and Hofesh Shechter as he joins the Company of Fiddler on the Roof.
