We caught up with Jordyn to learn about her experience filming one of YouTube Red's first ever feature films, what goes on her signature pizza and who she calls her queen. Chances are she has the same queen as you!
Sweety High: In your own words, what's Dance Camp about?
Jordyn Jones: A bunch of kids go to a dance camp where the compete against each other, but obviously in a friendly kind of way. There's a lot of dancing and a lot of random, crazy things happening. It was super funny and a blast to film.
SH: Tell us a little bit about your character in the film.
JJ: I play the YOLO team captain. It's so funny, because she's totally not me. She thinks she's all that and better than everyone else. It was super fun to film, because I got to do something that I've never done before.
SH: What was it like to be involved in one of YouTube Red's first movies?
JJ: It's amazing to think that people are watching my movie on YouTube Red. It's still weird to think that I'm in a movie. If it wasn't for YouTube, I wouldn't have put out my cover of "Banji," which is how it all started for me.
SH: How have your fans reacted to the movie so far?
JJ: They all love it! I keep getting comments every day about how they love my acting and my singing in the movie.
SH: Which Disney princess do you relate to most?
JJ: Rapunzel! She likes to go on adventures and try something new and chase after her dreams. That's me!
SH: You have three words to describe yourself. GO!
JJ: Energetic, happy and confident
SH: What's the very first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
JJ: I'll either open Instagram or text people back.
SH: If you could only shop at one store for the rest of your life, which one would you pick?
JJ: Definitely Top Shop, because they have a wide range of everything from pants to bathing suits to socks and shoes.

SH: What's your biggest pet peeve?
JJ: When shoes scrape on the floor and it makes that horrible sound, or when you scrape your fork on the bottom of your plate. Just terrible sounds!
SH: What do you never leave home without?
JJ: Phone, charger, headphones, money and my Jordyn bracelet.
SH: Whose closet would you want to raid?
JJ: I would steal clothes from Zendaya or Gigi Hadid.
SH: Who's your biggest influence as a dancer?
JJ: Beyoncé, because she does it all. Obviously, she's queen!
SH: Is there any dance move you would call the signature Jordyn move?
JJ: I like to do the checkmark. It's when you go on one hand and kick up, kind of a B-boy move.
