The InterContinental Miami has a couple new dancing ladies -- and a dancing man.
After open auditions and a finalist round last week, judges chose three Miami-Dade dancers whose 19-story silhouetted moves will replace the current image on the outside of the downtown Miami hotel.
The winners are:
• Jasmine Howell, 23, a personal trainer who lives in downtown Miami. Howell, who specializes in modern/contemporary dance, received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance from the New World School of the Arts and performed in New York City's Joyce Theater.
• Jay Marcos, a 21-year-old who started dancing as a New York City street performer. He worked the runway in fashion and appeared in music videos by stars including Christina Aguilera and Wyclef Jean. Now a resident of Coral Gables, he specializes in hip hop and modern dance and teaches dance classes at Body & Soul.
• Jessica Mederos, 18, who specializes in contemporary and hip hop and teaches dance at Dance Unlimited in Kendall. A resident of Olympia Heights in West Miami-Dade, Mederos graduated recently from Southwest Miami High.
A new dancing image is expected to be unveiled late next week, just in time to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach.
