What they’re saying

Collado (is an) incredibly charismatic performer who brings every scene (she’s) in to life…

Jadi is a powerhouse. Fire, flavor, passion. This type of discipline and focus cannot be taught, it’s fueled from a deeper place within. Looking forward to what the UNIVERSE has in store for her

- Lyric Cruz, Choreographer/Creative Director

@JadiCollado owns the screen and my heart, a tiny and feisty @AZEALIABANKS with her 80’s attitude!
