If there is only one way to describe Jenyne Butterfly, it would be that she created her own way. Taking up pole dancing, joining the circus, creating a student body for herself, what she has done with her life and the skill she developed over years of callouses is not only commendable but also envious.
That is not to say that any of her achievements were easy, and she will say it herself, reaching where she is through hardship is what made it all enjoyable for her. Now she gets to teach something she loves, to other women, educates body positivity, and lives a happy life with her husband, son, and daughter who will soon join the family.

He got to see her become the woman she is today and Luis knows she has a wife who is one in a billion in this world. While the couple is together for a long time, they have only been married for a year and a half.
Jenyne and her husband tied the knot on 19 May 2020 in Puerto Rico, surrounded by their friends and family. At the time of their marriage, the couple had been together for more than seven years and engaged for about 15 months. They met for the first time when Jenyne joined Cirque and two years after their first meeting, the couple welcomed their first child, son Angel.
Born in February 2014, Angel will be seven years old this year. He is the first child of the couple, with the second one on the way. Jenyne is currently pregnant and with the couple’s first daughter together. Luis has two older daughters from his previous marriage, and the Netflix star-to-be considers all to be her family.

The show is about embracing the pole and taking pole dancing as a way to promote body positivity instead of just entertainment. Netflix’s synopsis reads, “In an effort to reclaim their bodies and lives, a group of women explore the intersections of movement and meaning in a powerful pole dancing program.”
Among the numerous ladies appearing in the documentary movie is Jenyne Butterfly. She will probably talk about her class and how she is teaching ladies online to dance on the pole and feel positive about themselves. Jenyne herself is an inspiration, so there is not much she has to do on the show.
Still, Strip Down, Rise Up appears to be an emotional ride which is even more potent in a world struggling from the effects of COVID 19. The documentary film will be released on Netflix on 5 February 2021 with Sheila Kelley and Jenyne Butterfly starring.
