Wesley Snipes

Snipes grew up in The Bronx and he decided early on that he wanted to be a dancer--until he took some acting classes. He started at the High School for the Performing Arts, but his mother divorced and they moved back to Orlando. Snipes would eventually graduate from Jones High School in 1980. While in Florida, Snipes did puppet theater, mime and musical theater in competitions and festivals. He then attended the State University of New York College at Purchase and graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in 1985. [+]
