Through her years teaching Jazz, Tap, Acro, Contemporary, Ballet, Hip Hop, and Musical Theatre, Jessica has always maintained that hard work and dedication should be accompanied by one thing – Fun!
Jessica trained competitively growing up and has since spent the last 16 years spreading her love of dance with studios in KW, Stratford, and most recently The Listowel School of Dance.
