Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Mackay Girl Set To Grace Stages Across The Globe

Originating from South Africa is Jennifer-Lee Houseman, a 13-year-old emerging talent, now living in Mackay, who is making significant waves in the realm of dancing, singing and modelling.

With her recent relocation to Australia, she brings a wealth of experience and achievements in the performing arts, thriving both on the stage and in front of the camera with a passion for captivating audiences.

When she's not dancing or in her heels, Jennifer-Lee loves to be in nature and enjoys long walks on the beach, hiking adventures or simply soaking in the sun.

Under the proud watch of her mother, Jackie Houseman, Jennifer-Lee showcased her skills at Talent Africa Regionals, clinching gold across multiple categories which impressively secured her qualification for national competitions.

In addition to her modelling accomplishments, Jennifer-Lee has excelled in dance competitions, earning Protea Colours in Dance for her outstanding performance at the World Freestyle Championships in the UK.

Her dedication and talent has reaped numerous awards, including the prestigious Triple Threat Winner title at Show Your Talent, where she demonstrated her remarkable skills in singing, dancing and modelling.

Currently attending dance classes at Leisa Payne School of Dance, Jennifer-Lee has recently completed her Grade 5 Jazz and Grade 5 Acro exams and eagerly anticipates her first competition in Australia at Get the Beat 2024, where she'll showcase her Jazz and Hip-Hop solos.

Additionally, she is preparing for upcoming performances at The Backyard Show by Sensory Circus and the Mackay Eisteddfod.

As a Grand Finalist for Fashion vs Beauty's Ultimate Double Header Miss Photogenic / Miss Diamond event, slated for September in Gold Coast, QLD, Jennifer-Lee's journey in the spotlight continues to gain momentum.

Jennifer-Lee is also kindly supporting the #loveyourovaries campaign to raise awareness for ovarian cancer. She is organising a fundraising event later this year and details will be announced on her Facebook page shortly. By participating in the "Tutu Challenge," Jennifer-Lee aims to contribute to the fight against ovarian cancer, a disease that affects thousands of Australian women annually.

With her continuous dedication and boundless passion for the performing arts, Jennifer-Lee shows no signs of slowing down and is poised to leave an unforgettable mark in the community as well as on stages across the globe.

Jennifer-Lee says “I love giving it all I have and leaving everything on the floor, I love the nature in Australia and I see myself working with animals in the future while also dancing, modelling and singing.”
