Jessica began her training at Youth Ballet Colorado under the tutelage of Amy Lynne Stoddard, Kristen St-John, Anne Burnidge, Katherine Clairboudt, and William Stern.
Miss Jessica left for a more rigorous program and training schedule and joined the Academy of Colorado Ballet. She received most of her instruction from Inessa and Meelis Pakri, Inge Saarsulu and Michele Dolighan.
She performed in Academy productions and Studio Company productions throughout her 4 year term.
In her professional performance career, Miss Jessica joined the company at Ballet Ariel under the Artistic leadership of Ilena Norton. Jessica enjoyed 7 seasons performing numerous soloist roles. In 2014 she resigned from the Company to dedicate her time to growing Dance Exploration.
Miss Jessica still loves to perform and you can now catch her in musical theater productions with Performance Now Theatre Company, Vintage Theater, and Inspire Creative.
Jessica started Dance Exploration in 2009 with a goal to bring affordable and quality dance education to the children in Jefferson County. In less than 8 years time, she has reached children in schools located in Denver, Jeffco, Aurora, Douglas, Cherry Creek and Littleton Public Schools as well as numerous private schools locations.
In 2014 she began expanding Dance Exploration through a Dance Ambassadorship option as a means to fulfill the company vision of bringing dance to every child in every school nationwide.
In 2015 she began Dancing Princess Parties- a traveling birthday party service sending dancing princesses and super heroes to children for birthday party entertainment.
My daughter is extremely shy. When she met Jessica, the owner, at a princess meet and great she instantly was comfortable with Jessica. I absolutely have enjoyed myself at every party and outreach event that I have attended. My daughter is so thrilled and delighted every time as well.
