About Jason Mercera

Biography

Biography Jason Mercera

The Foundation

Jason (1994) was born and raised in Capelle a/d IJssel (suburb of Rotterdam) in The Netherlands. When he was just eight years old, he was already interested in the performing arts and decided to audition for little Simba in the international production The Lion King (produced by Stage Entertainment) in Holland. Out of the many applications, he was chosen to play the main part in the musical and ended up playing the role of Simba for no less than three seasons (2004-2007). The foundation for his career was created.

Lucia Marthas (founder and director of the Institute of Performing Arts Lucia Marthas in Amsterdam) recognized talent and asked Jason to audition for the academy. He was accepted and followed the preliminary program Dance next to his normal elementary and, later on, high school. Since his normal school was at his home place and the program was taught in Amsterdam, Jason had to be completely committed to his education. After high school it was no surprise that he did his bachelor in Dance Leadership at the same institute. Instead of the normal four year program, he was allowed to do the three year crash course and finished it in 2014.

Work Experience

Next to The Lion King, Jason was allowed to show his talent in much more productions. Since he was twelve years old, he performed in several shows as performer. At television a.o.: (Junior) Eurovision Songcontest (AVRO), Kids Choice Awards (Nickelodeon) and Popstars (SBS6). At the theatre he performed in several productions of Stage Entertainment/Joop van den Ende Theaterproductions and in dinnershows. Furthermore he participated in the video clip of Ralf Mackenbach (winner Junior Eurovision Songcontest 2009), did voice-overs for a.o. iCarly (Nickelodeon) and The Naked Brothers Band (Nickelodeon), and did fashion shows inland and abroad. He worked for Sony Entertainment for a longer period and choreographed video clips for a.o. Nina June, Shelton Telesford and Suleigha Winkel.

Urban Dance

Within the education program at the institute, Jason was attracted to the urban dance styles of Vogue, Dancehall and Waacking. He participated in workshops and masterclasses of known dancers and choreographers from New York, a.o. Anthony Burrell (Beyoncé), Leyomi Mizrahi, Aviance Milan and Archie Burnett. Meanwhile, Jason is a widely solicited teacher for these urban styles.

The Future

In his younger days of being an artist, Jason has gained a lot of experience. He is determined and driven to show more of him as an artist and therefor started his own entertainment company: JMEntertainment. His own shows and projects, as The Seven Deadly Sins and Young Kings Performance School (together with his sister Tibisay Mercera), are just examples of what he wants to show and bring to the world. Making a statement in the international entertainment and being acknowledged as a dancer, choreographer and theatrical producer is what his mission is for the future years.

JME is een agency opgericht door Jason Mercera www.jasonmercera.com. Het is een internationaal entertainment bureau voor allround performers/dansers en modellen. Daarnaast is JME Agency er tevens voor kids die al actief zijn in de entertainment industrie of die het talent en discipline hebben om in de toekomst werkzaam te zijn in deze entertainment wereld.

Het aanbod

De agency is opgericht om dansers/performers te trainen en uit te zenden naar het werkveld. Dit betekent onder andere dat je geholpen wordt bij:

  • Portfolio en showreels opbouwen
  • Diverse Trainingen
  • Het behartigen van jouw zakelijke belangen
  • Nieuwe opdrachten

JME Agency beschikt over een grote database bestaande uit vier verschillende onderdelen; zang, dans, theater en film. Daarnaast staat de agency bekend om haar nationale en internationale werkzaamheden, of dit nu grootschalige commerciële projecten of kleinere shows zijn.

 

Bij JME Agency staat het allround zijn van alle entertainers centraal. Denk hierbij niet alleen aan het zijn van een danser of model op de achtergrond, maar ook aan commerciële doeleinden waaraan je kunt meewerken aan reclamespotjes, voice-overs etc.  

Daarnaast stelt JME Agency kwaliteit voorop. Om deze reden bieden wij niet alleen een platform voor de performers aan, maar we bieden ook een coaching traject aan, om een ieder klaar te stomen als allround performer. Van tijd tot tijd zullen er masterclasses gegeven worden door  vakmensen speciaal voor JME Agency. Deze zullen gegeven worden door onder andere bekende nationale- en internationale choreografen, dansers, regisseurs, modellen en/of acteurs. Bovendien worden er trainingen aangeboden om de performers in topvorm te houden.

                            “We’ll take it to the highest level, fear is not an option.”
