Rodney Henry

I began my professional career between the ages of 5 and 6. My stomping grounds began in my hometown of Jersey City, NJ. I was a beginner dancer with Freddie Moore's, Hudson Repertory Dance Theater. By the summer of 1997, I was blessed to be selected to Hudson Repertory Dance Enesemble; which is the highest honor you can receive when dancing with this company and I was one of the 2 youngest members to ever receive this. That same summer, I was fortunate to meet my first manager that would usher me and my family to a world of Arts. Through auditioning, bookings, and great parenting, my passion for Theatre Arts burned on. 

My acting career kicked off with a September(1997) of beginner's luck. It started with a Compaq Computer commercial that would be aired during the 1997-1998 Superbowl Championship, a print ad that promoted the awareness and dangers of kidnapping youth, and finally a Halloween appearance on "All My Children." From then on, I've been blessed to act on Disney's Broadway Musical, "The Lion King" as Young Simba, Queen Latifah's, "The Cookout," and another featured film acting as Vannessa Williams son in "MY Brother."

I am trained vocally, in broadcasting and in writing for stage, tv, and shorts. Studied at Rutgers University's Mason Gross for a year and now i am a trained, certified instructor of Yoga. I have many more accolades that I can run down, but above them all is my passion to mentor and grant opportunities to children the way opportunities were granted to me in my youth.
