“Menina introduced me to my American agents: Go 2 Talent Agency.


It is with her experience and reputation that I was able to meet and be connected to many leading choreographers and dancers in the industry. This all helped jump start my dance career in America. She has the knowledge and knows first hand what it takes to progress to the next level of your career. I couldn’t ask for a better mentor..

"I think that what you're doing, Menina, is incredible. And likewise, in what I'm doing in my programming, I feel like it really comes from the heart space of really wanting to help because we've been there and it's possible. Really knowing that whatever you put your mind to, you truly can do. There will be obstacles, and you will get through them, and you can do hard things."

“Well, for starters, without Menina, I would have never even realized that I wanted to have a professional dance career. The networking connections Menina has made available to me have opened the door to my dance career in the U.S. and abroad. I would not be where I am today without Menina’s mentorship!”

“My very first website was designed by Menina! I remember her taking the time to sit with me, listen to me and make sure to create something that truly represented who I was. This was an important step for me as I was first starting out my career in the U.S. as a professional dancer.

“Menina was an instrumental resource during my transition from Canada to working professionally in LA. Her guidance and knowledge on the U.S. working visa process was invaluable to me as I navigated this new path for the first time! Thank you Menina!


You are the best! Thanks for all that you have helped me with in my career ❤️

“I have known Menina for many years and she has helped me immensely with getting my first O-1 visa.


Menina also taught me so much about working in the industry and applying for a visa! This career choice is lot of work but with dedication and a little help from a friendly face, you will learn everything you need to know!

Menina Fortunato and I over the years have developed a strong working relationship. Without her assistance in writing immigration letters and connecting me with an immigration lawyer I wouldn’t have have been able to dance on the world stages I did.

Menina designed my first website and set me up with a headshot photoshoot where I got stunning headshots for dancing and acting auditions. Thanks to her, I signed with McDonald Selznick & Associates (MSA), one of the biggest dance agencies in Los Angeles!

Menina's help with branding continued to help me reach a larger audience when I booked a large series regular role on a popular kids' network show. Thus, without receiving her top-notch guidance in networking and social media marketing, I don't think I would've had the resources I needed to get my name and talent out there!

“Menina introduced me to the professional dance industry that taught me so much more than dance. She taught me that we are our own business, and that this industry goes so much further than talent. 


Menina helped me create a successful relationship with my first agency, da Costa talent. Through helpful advice and a professional reference, she assisted in getting me signed.”

"You've had such a huge influence on me. I just love how you always thought about dance as more than just what everyone else was doing. You really blazed a trail. I really don't think I would be doing what I'm doing if I didn't have examples like you."
